You can use plain white flour and sugar but the versions with spelt or buckwheat flour, sweetened with light brown sugar or panela (rapadura) unrefined whole cane sugar are also delicious.  These are the typical crumbly biscuits from Brittany made with salted butter.  They can be eaten alone or used as cake bases where they provide a wonderful contrast to smoother or sweeter toppings.

Originally I wasn’t going to post these sablés here but they’re just so good and addictive.  They’re healthier even if you shouldn’t eat toooo many or too much butter.  So I thought you might be interested.  Can I tempt you?

Wow this is like a really short post!!!  Well, I’ll be off then.  It’s my last teaching day before the summer and me and the kids have a video to watch.  There are farewell last day meals to eat today too.  Yipee!!!  So I’ll have more time to spend on making cakes, the blog and also visiting other blogger and Instagram friends.  Life is good.  🙂

Wishing you a very good week too sweet reader, with a little or lots of happy baking and eating! 🙂 Lili x

Making cakes with my French mother on Sundays was an important part of my childhood. As an adult I then experimented with baking books and internet recipes and did a great patisserie course in Le Cordon Bleu Paris. I'm still trying out new recipes and creating some of my own cakes with influences from all around the world, adding some healthy ones to the repertoire. Yes, I love cakes!!! :)
