On the breakfast table, there were cleared glass jars filled with delicious home-made raspberry and apricot jam. Along those bottle of jams, there are jars which were filled with spéculoos ( which looked somewhat like peanut butter). Spéculoos is a shortcrust biscuit which has a heavy cinnamon taste. Don’t you love the taste and smell of cinnamon? It always reminds me of Christmas and ginger biscuits. Cinnamon goes really well with apples or cheese. It’s a perfect heavenly match!
It was summer when I frequented that particular cafe. There is a lovely warm glow when the sunbeams shone, though.I thought it would be nice if I ordered breakfast set which consists of crunchy granola with plain yogurt, served with hot cocoa and a glass of apple juice.
It was simply one of the best french experience I had. Soaking in the warm atmosphere and enjoying breakfast with my two travel mates. Outside the cafe, there stood a girl singing “somewhere over the rainbow” while strumming a ukulele.
Back in Singapore, I had a difficult time trying to prepare a hearty breakfast for myself. Walnuts, granola, and berries are too expensive. Freshly-baked cereal grain, dark rye or farmer’s bread are slightly more expensive here in Singapore.Nevertheless, I still insist on having a hearty meal in Singapore. In fact, I have decided to create a series of breakfast recipes which uses ingredients that were sold in Singapore.
