Sunday Breakfast: Tea and Speculoos Cake
I love Sundays; itâ€™s my favourite day of the week, my pace slows down considerably and life suddenly becomes unhurried.
Itâ€™s the only day that is truly mine, to do with as I wishâ€¦. no obligations, work or errands to run.
Sundays are about leisurely languid activities â€“ 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 isnâ€™t always fancy or elaborate, and sometimes, not much thought goes into what Iâ€™m eating but thereâ€™s always a certain salience to it.
Like these little Bonne Maman L’Ã©toile spÃ©culos pÃ©pites 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 Parisâ€¦ I just packed them and brought them home with me.
They make idle Sundays at home complete; theyâ€™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.
Itâ€™s a thing of Sundays!
