Short of ideas for the July 4th picnic? (or any picnic for that matter..!) This cake is very easy to make, yet I think you’ll receive the “originality” prize from the other picnic participants !!! I adore the tropical flavors…the tanginess of passionfruit finds a perfect balance in sweet banana caramel….
One of the good things about blogging is that you learn a lot about other cultures, traditions… I didn’t know Americans celebrated their Independence Day with picnics…In Argentina, Independence Day is July 9th (Have you noticed many countries in America became independent in July, of different years? What is it? A month appropriate for breaking up chains? AND France! though there, it is not independence exactly…)
Well, to go back to my original point (my husband always complains about how much I digress in conversation!), in Argentina, we celebrate with stews, empanadas….Hot dishes for our cold July celebration!!, so the idea of a picnic never crossed my mind…until today… BUT having horribly high temperatures here in Paris, I decided to leave aside my original idea of “staging” this post in the open air….and I decided my multi-purpose (if tiny) balcony would be just right !!!
Happy Birthday, USA !!!, and for my readers of other countries…enjoy this summery cake as much as I do!!
