We’ve sauteed white mushrooms before, now we’ll work with chanterelles. Chanterelles are golden-color fleshy wild mushrooms that have a relatively mild and slightly fruity flavor. I’ve noticed they hold their shape nicely while being sauteed, and do not collapse easily as other mushrooms varieties do sometimes.
Sauteing the chanterelles with garlic brings about the mushrooms’ wild taste. Toss fresh parsley on top – a colorful, healthful, and nutritious dish is ready.
Remember the guest-at-the-door series from HERE? Yes, Russian sharlotka, that beautiful cake that can be fixed at the spur of a moment and make any guest happy. Here’s another such cake, again made with apples. Easy apple coffee cake.
How easy? The cake batter takes a few minutes to put together, the apples are cored and sliced, arranged on top of the batter within a few minutes more, then the apples are sprinkled with cinnamon-infused walnuts within seconds. That’s it. Off goes the cake into the oven and comes out oozing inviting aromas. Two of my friends sampled the cake and immediately asked for the recipe. Here it is, for all of you, my friends. Try it. Totally worth it.
It goes great with a cup of coffee (of course, it is a coffee cake!) and a cup of steaming hot tea.
