I know by now you guys are used to long absences now and then in this space. Nothing new this time, work trips one after the another, couple of deadlines three months ran in a jiffy.  Just in a day I’m starting for my long holidays back home. My excitement level is building up, to feel the warmth, meet all my friends and eat day in and out …oh some bit of shopping as well 😉

This cake is from my Japanese friend’s sister who owns a patisserie shop in Japan. I fell in love with the simplicity of the cake, freshness from earl grey tea and moisture in the cake was just way too perfect. I remade this cake couple of time, but last time since it was a birthday celebration, I topped with honey mascarpone to make it more special…trust me it was total winner.

Ok folks, i’m off for another six weeks, this space will be inactive until then, but you enjoy your holidays/Christmas time!
