Moelleux à l'érable de François

François maple cake

It is in part thanks to this famous recipe that François won An Almost Perfect Supper in 2017.

A soft, or semi-cooked, is meant to flow inside. It is therefore important to watch the cooking carefully so as not to make muffins. The center should not be cooked.

Each step is important in this recipe as in most baking recipes.

Each bite is an explosion of maple and its tender texture melts in your mouth.

Enjoy your lunch!
