Yes, exactly as I said

CH: raisinet - France : groseilles UK - redcurrant

CH: groseilles - France: groseille ŗ maquereau - UK gooseberries.

I make a great NO egg chocolate cake for grandson, if anyone wants an eggless recipe. And a great chocolate and ... absinthe, of course, cake.

Re: Give us your best chocolate recipes, pls!

Chocolate!! I can never have too much chocolate

This past weekend I baked a Chocolate Babka, and it was very very good! (attached a pic, how do people "paste" images in their posts here??)

Link to recipe:
https://www.mondomulia.com/2013/04/0...alem-cookbook/

Or if you want to keep it simple, make your own Schoggi Gipfeli with store-bought pastry sheets

Wow, this looks impressive and is actually quite easy! I also like the home baked chocolate croissants, the Merci bars will go great inside them. Thanks!
