As today is a Public Holiday I have to move my cake baking for the week to a Monday. Let’s see how long the cake last…I can see myself baking again tomorrow…

Again, the cake improves its taste after a few hours, when all flavours settle. Perfect for breakfast tomorrow!

Today, a beautiful song from the Senegalese singer Ismaël Lô, Tajabone.This song was featured in Pedro Almodóvar‘s film All About My Mother.
