Caramel delight

This French recipe comes from the Vorwerk book “The best of the communities recipes”. It’s been tried and tested by a friend of mine who qualified the recipe as “yum”. That was enough compliment for me and since I happened to have lots of the French toffees called Carambars lying around in my cupboard (and that I was trying to save from my toffee-crazy daughter), the opportunity was too good to miss.

Finally, Jean from Perth (aka Cookie1 from the Thermomix forum)  has tried my Sunflower bread recipe. Here is a picture she took before it got devoured by her family at a dinner party:

  1. This is a recipe my caramel-loving self has been avoiding, Nora! Thanks for sharing. I’ll just have to give in and make it, won’t I?

      Sorry to be a temptress Madame Thermomix. If you make it some day you have guests then you won’t “have” to finish the whole batch by yourself 😉

  2. OMG Nora that’s so mouthwatering have to try this and keep on dreaming (saving) for a thermomix.
    Everything seems so simple with it.
