    This looks stunning! It would certainly make a show-stopping dessert! I can’t believe it only calls for a handful of ingredients!

      Hi Michelle, That is the beauty of this recipe and one of the recipes that we were taught in school in France years ago of course. But once you know how it works with the weights you can make it anytime no recipe needed it.

    Wow this is so beautiful that it’s hard to believe it only takes 4 ingredients to make!

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      Believe it! That is why I love this dessert so much. And the other wonderful thing is that you add chocolate, raisins, dates… just let your imagination go wild and have fun with it.
      Bon Appetit!!

    Just looking at this beauty you’d think you would spend a whole day in the kitchen. But the fact that I have all the ingredients seems so awesome. This will be a must for my husband this Valentine’s Day.

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      You and your husband will love it and he never has to know that you did not slave all day in the kitchen 🙂
      Happy Valentine’s day and love your feedback when you make it.

    I love that this recipe has only a handful of ingredients, yet it is so beautiful and elegant! I also love the mold you used.

    1. Giangi Townsend says:

      Thank you Stacy!. A easy recipe that was taught to me when I was growing up and how can you forget 4 ingredients right?
      I am getting into molds and that can be a dangerous thing, but we have so many wonderful ones on the market.
      Thank you for stopping by.
