Books & Cake

I haven’t kept up with Paris in July posts but there is still a week left and I wanted to share about the cake we made and some books. I mean, what can be better than that combination right?

I can’t remember where but I heard about French Yogurt cake and I wanted some. So I found this recipe. It was delicious, not overly sweet, and I can see how it would be even more delicious if combined with some marmalade or ice cream. I had mine with my coffee and it was just perfect.

Now to keep with the French-theme, I do have some books to recommend while you enjoy your cake or other treats.

French Milk by Lucy Knisley. The author records a six month trip she took to Paris with her mom. I liked that there are pictures and drawings in this memoir where she captures some of the feelings of being away from home for an extended period. I wish I could link to my review but when I upgraded my blog a few years ago I lost some of my reviews. This is one that I don’t own but would love to add to my library.

All the Flowers in Paris by Sarah Jio. I read this one last year and found it very entertaining. This novel is about two women during different time frames but all centered along a street in Paris. You can read more of my thoughts here.

Miss Paris Goes to Paris by Paula Gallico. A cozy read about Mrs. Harris who wants to buy a Dior dress and has saved until one day she can make her dream come true. What can be more Parisian than a tale of haute couture. I read this one several years ago for Paris in July and it is a slim novel so you are still trying to decide what to read, this is charming and quick.

Are you participating in Paris in July? Have you read some great books and have you complimented those with any foods or drinks or other ways to celebrate Paris?
