Danette is the name of a French dessert, commercialised since the 70s, that is extremely popular with children. It is one of those shop bought desserts that are part of every French kid’s memories… It’s only recently that I got a recipe to make my own at home and of course, the recipe comes from the French Thermomix community. I was delighted to find it since we can’t find Danettes in Ireland and it’s also better to have your own home-made version, without all the preservatives and artificial flavours…
