For the Battle Food #33, Elise from andsowecook.com is inviting us to pack our pic-nic. I have no idea if you remember but for the last pic-nic challenge I made these French Orange Cake in Jar.
But this time, I will share with you something savoury, a special recipe coming from the kitchen of one of my friend, Mum Christine. Mum, because she is always giving us good advices. These little basil cannelés, her husband make me taste them the first time… and then the second time at their place and the third … I think that this is one of their specialities ! Always so delicious. So I though I could share the recipe with you !
