Sunday Breakfast: Tea and Speculoos Cake
I love Sundays; it’s my favourite day of the week, my pace slows down considerably and life suddenly becomes unhurried.
It’s the only day that is truly mine, to do with as I wish…. no obligations, work or errands to run.
Sundays are about leisurely languid activities – like sleep-ins and breakfasts in bed, and taking the time to read a book so enthralling, you reread chapters just to relive the emotions.
One of my favourite things about Sundays is breakfast, or brunch or whenever I eat my first meal.
It isn’t always fancy or elaborate, and sometimes, not much thought goes into what I’m eating but there’s always a certain salience to it.
Like these little Bonne Maman L’étoile spéculos pépites de sucre (speculoos cakes/stars), I got them months ago in Paris to have for snacks while running around the city but with all those amazing boulangeries and patisseries in Paris… I just packed them and brought them home with me.
They make idle Sundays at home complete; they’re like spiced muffins with sugar crystals, utterly delicious and not cloyingly sweet.
It goes well with a nice cup of almond milk tea, and some fruit, for a light but indulgent breakfast.
It’s a thing of Sundays!
