The Little Red Hen Strikes Again

Wednesday, my friend and I did a double session of our watercolour lessons so we went out for lunch.  We had been looking forward to this, planning on tiramisu for dessert.  All began well but things bogged down after our starter as we sat waiting, waiting, until there was barely time for our main dish, never mind dessert which we cancelled.  We were 5 minutes late for class and no dessert!  I don’t like to dwell on this kind of frustration so I decided to make some tiramisu myself.

We will have lost nothing by waiting, certainly not any weight, and I dare say this tiramisu will be of an inimitable quality, since I used eggs from our chickens.  And this little red hen will share.


Here’s the recipe:


Mix     6 egg yolks
50 g vanilla sugar

   over boiling water (5 min.) until creamy.

Add     250 g mascarpone.

Soak sponge fingers in:

            150 ml coffee
            4 tbsp brandy (cognac)
            4 tbsp Tia Maria (never mind this if you don’t have any)

Make layers.  Top with whipped cream.  Sprinkle with cocoa.

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
