|My patisserie challenge, capitole abricot|
Welcome to my patisserie challenge. This year I have decided to buy something different from our village boulangerie every Sunday and to enjoy the simple pleasure of treating myself.
My choice today is the capitole abricot a light and airy layered sponge, sandwiched with fruit filled cream and topped with meringue. It is soft, moist, fruity and melts in the mouth giving a very satisfying eating experience. It's hard to believe something so light actually contains any calories at all! If I’m honest, I’m feeling a bit of a glutton today as Ed and I thought homemade pizza would be a great end of school holiday treat this evening and I've also made another batch of tiny double chocolate tartlets from Jill Colonna's Teatime in Paris (I fear these are becoming a habit). At least they are only very small and should last us a few days.
Thankfully we have also been quite good at getting out on our bikes this week and have covered over a hundred kilometres, including a morning coffee run this morning as the weather was perfect.

Don’t forget to join me next week to see my next choice from Bernadette at the boulangerie.
