When I first read about Rosie I couldn't believe it.
I still have some difficulties to comprehend.
organized by my dear friend Ivy at kopiaste.org.
Here in this Beautiful Post
Ivy tells you about Rosie, her illness and why we do this together.
Maria's writs this touching Post
giving us the sad news about her dear friend that has passed away.
Rosie,e was among the first non Italian blogger I known.
actually I never managed to learn name of her blog " Baking Cakes Galore"
for me she was, will always be
Rosie from "rosie makes a "peace" of cake"
I loved that name of her blog.
and she was my very very first host of an event.
I was so nervous, I sent her 4 recipes
I was blogging since 5months so everything was so new, almost complicated.
Rosie was so sweet, she emailed me and together we decided which recipe to put.
since then now and then I stopped by at here blog, smiling over all those sweet things
she was a lovely person. will miss you Rosie.
Since my daughter Helena was found allergic to white sugar,
yeast and lots of other ingredients,
5 years ago.
I had to change completely my baking cakes.
this is one of our favorites recipe.
you regain old bread, it is healty and also very energy giving.
perfect at breakfast or at a break in the afternoon after study or doing sports.
I take it with me on my trekking,
together with some tea and beautiful panoramas
makes the fatigue worth it.
the recipe is from a dear friend, Laura met at one of the old town festivals in this area.
I adore these festivals, you get to know the inhabitants and you can learn so much from them,
specially the old people. they can tell you stories about the villages, the mountain and their lives.
I love listening to them.
250gr of old bread
mine is usually
400gr of milk
3 apples (peeled and cut in cubes)
100gr of raisins
50gr of crushed nuts
50gr of crushed almonds
50grgr of cane sugar (you can also do without)
7gr of cremor tartar
tear the bread in pieces and pour the milk over.
let rest over the night.
the next day you will find it swelled
mix the bread with the rest of the ingredients
then put the mass in a mould, if you want you grease it with
two drops of vegetable oil or better
put a baking paper under.
bake in oven: 200°C for 35min
if you like a crunchy crust
sprinkle can sugar over the cake before
