    Hello everyone. I have found a recipe on line that I would like to make, but the problem is the measurements are all given as a “pot” . Un pot de sucre, 2 pots de farine etc. Is this a standard measure in France ? Can anyone tell me roughly what it would be in grams ?

    Is it the “gâteau au yaourt” receipe ? Because if it is, you have to use the yogurt pot to mesure the other ingredients.

    Yes it is! Silly of me not to work that out myself. Have you tried it and is it as good as it looks?

    Yes it is a nice easy cake, it is a basic at home. I like it very much with apples in it. You can also put chocolate, or bananas, in fact whatever you want, it works ;-)

    Oy! I’ll have you know that my soda bread was a complete success, it has made a wonderful base for my garden brolly, even today’s wind is not blowing it over.

    I do mine with 3 pots of plain wheat flower (no maizena), only one pot of sugar and no lemon. Must be nice with lemon :good:

    She ate it all.
    Every bit.
    Not a crumb left.
    Jeez, wish I had written the recipe down.
    Brolly is still standing, swaying alarmingly, but still vertical.

    How was your cake like Julie ? I’ve just tried a new receipe, called a flognarde, out of the oven, now cooling down for tonight :

    And here is the receipe if somebody is tempted

    Clafoutis aux pommes et citron

    It was delicious thank you, Babeth. I found I didn’t have any lemons so I put apple in like you suggested. We had some while it was still warm with a little bit of crème fraîche for dessert. Sorry I didn’t take a photo before we ate it !
