  • ngrédients:

    1/2 tasse de cerises confites rouges, coupées en dés

    1/2 tasse de cerises vertes confites, coupées en dés

    1/2 tasse d’abricots secs, coupés en dés

    1/2 tasse de raisins secs dorés

    1/2 tasse de raisins noirs

    1 cuillère à soupe de zeste d’orange

    1 tasse de cognac ou de rhum

    3/4 tasse de pacanes, coupées en dés

    3/4 tasse de noix, coupées en dés

    230g (1 3/4 tasse) de farine à gâteaux ou de farine tout usage

    1 cuillère à café de poudre à pâte

    1/2 c. À thé de sel

    250 g de beurre non salé

    200 g (1 tasse) de sucre brun foncé

    3 gros oeufs

    1 c. À thé d’extrait de vanille

    2 c. À soupe de cognac (cognac) en option

    50 g (3 c. À soupe) de jus d’orange

    Instructions: • Comment faire des fruits de cognac 1. Découpez uniquement ces gros morceaux de fruits secs. 2. Dans un grand récipient en verre, ajoutez tous les fruits secs. 3. Ajouter le cognac. J’ai choisi le cognac parce qu’il a une couleur sombre. Remuez légèrement les fruits pour qu’ils soient uniformément trempés dans le cognac. 4. Laissez-le à la température de la pièce pendant 1 jour. Ce sera encore mieux pendant quelques jours ou même une semaine:) c’est totalement à vous.

    Comment faire le gâteau

    5. Égouttez vos fruits à l’eau de vie. Laissez le cognac restant de côté pour une utilisation ultérieure.

    6. Couper toutes les noix en dés et réserver.

    7. Tamisez la farine, la poudre à pâte et le sel et mettez de côté. (J’ai oublié d’ajouter du sel dans le tamis plus tôt)

    8. Préchauffer le four à 150 ° C / 300 ° F

    9. Dans un grand bol, ajouter le beurre et le sucre. Mélangez à basse vitesse pendant environ une minute, juste pour les combiner. Puis augmentez à vitesse moyenne et mélangez pendant environ 10 minutes jusqu’à l’obtention d’une texture crémeuse et moelleuse. Grattez le bol de temps en temps.

    10. Réduisez la vitesse au minimum. Ajouter les œufs un à la fois.

    11. Ajouter les ingrédients secs, cuillère à cuillère.

    12. Ajoutez l’extrait de vanille, le brandy (facultatif, si vous voulez plus d’arôme de brandy), le jus d’orange.

    13. Grattez le bol et mélangez pendant quelques secondes.

    14. Ajouter le mélange de fruits et de noix. Utilisez une spatule pour plier jusqu’à ce qu’ils soient bien mélangés dans la pâte.

    15. Graisser légèrement le plat et tapisser le papier parchemin. Comme le mien est un moule carré, j’aime bien tapisser le papier de cette façon (voir la vidéo).

    16. Versez la pâte et faites-la cuire à 150 ° C pendant environ 2 heures jusqu’à ce que le cure-dent en ressorte propre.

    17. Laisser le gâteau refroidir. Percez quelques trous sur le gâteau. Pendant qu’il fait chaud, appliquez un peu de cognac sur la surface. Laissez-le refroidir avant de couper le gâteau.

    18. Prêt à servir

  • This is legit one of the best videos I’ve seen in a while! I friggen love snacks lol. Frozen blueberries are amazing too! I’m also sad I missed out on that PB cookie dough sandwich recipe. Maybe it’ll magically pop up somewhere 😉 lol I did sign up for the e-mails tho! From March onward, looking forward to it!

  • Joanna soh is beautiful & gorgeous. She is also a fantastic cook & nutritionist. I wish I could find a woman like her she is my dream girl.

  • Hi sis. Very thankful for this video.. is there any specific brand for flour and vanilla essence. If so can you please share sis.. if we donot use all purpose flour then we have to use baking soda. Is it so

  • Please leave any questions you have here for Malcolm and we will bring them up in next show with him. Please also leave any thoughts on vitamin D

  • I’ve been trying the circuits you’ve shared and omg, I’m dead lol! Your workouts are awesome, I’m really loving circuit training. I definitely feel sore the next day, but I also feel great!

  • what size cake pan did you use. Its not mentioned. Tq. I tried it, it turned out great but I used whisky and added a teaspoon of fruit cake spice. It was yummy but only turn out a little short as the tin I used was a little too big.

  • Diet can have a radical effect on lipids. In my personal experiment my TC went from 5.7 to 10.0. The raise came mainly from LDL. I have the lab tests to proof this. The change in my diet was not that radical, I went from LCHF (about 100g carbs daily) to keto (around 20g carbs daily). I’m not commenting on is this kind of change in lipids good, bad or neutral. Just saying a diet can have a radical effect!

  • Haha I used to hate Lenny and Larry’s too…but now I love them. I don’t know what changed. Your new training style looks really fun I haven’t really seen most of those movements before.

  • Yass girl I’m glad you’re enjoying mixing it up. Your videos have been so good lately, I can definitely tell that you’re inspired. I train similarly to your new style (circuits/plyos) and I have some workouts on my channel that I think you’ll like!xx

  • I’m loving this recipe perfectly seasonal. I don’t personally like alcohol but know how it helps to flavour the cake thank you for sharing the recipe it looks scrumptious! ����

  • Hi, I enjoy your videos but in regards to the audio you may want to look into a de-esser plugin for your audio production program, there’s some serious sibilance happening in the audio.

  • Yummmmmmmm�� love love love all of these ideas. I also love that your massive pancake flipper came in handy ���� pumped for the recipe in your newsletter xoxox

  • Thank you! My new go-to snack is sugar free jello cups mixed with Greek yogurt and/or low-fat cottage cheese, and “toasted” (don’t knock it until you try it!) Lundberg salted organic rice cakes topped with Dannon Light & Fit vanilla or other flavored Greek yogurt. Please try it for a very sweet and salty and satisfy snack/dessert! ��❤️

  • Loved this! Thank you so much:) The banana egg pancake is one of my favorites especially since it’s clean making it easy on the tummy too!

  • I used to make those banana pancakes all the time! Sometimes I would be lazy, and just blend the two together for a few seconds, just enough for there to be some banana chunks left in the mix.:D

  • I don’t know if i did something wrong with the pb cookie dough bites but all i could taste was chickpeas so they weren’t very good:(

  • I had a slow metabolism until i tried @t. Now i am losing weight and fat very fast, this @t is magical. If you want to lose weight and fat very fast and healty, you need to try it @t. You don’t need to stick to a diet, you can eat everything you want. Just give this a chance. This increases longevity and decreases hunger. It helps with blood sugar control. Just try it @t

  • Happy holidays…this Christmas cake recipe is really I wanted to because it can eaten right away..thank you, I will try this,more power to your channel..new subscriber here.

  • Swiss Chard is not a good food source it contains a high source of oxalates.I agree with everything else though and thank you for a great show.

  • Malcolm, love your 3 books and most of your talks but to claim that you can’t change your LDL throug diet is to neglect the work of Dave Feldman and the energitransport theory AND the high number of LMHR including my self on lchf Just as stupid as youtube censuring vit c and d Come again on that one:)

  • Hey can u do another video like this please? I love them! And could u do more options that don’t include peanuts and almonds… I’m allergic to nuts.. love to meet you one day! Come to Australia x

  • Let’s keep this simple: just go vegan! You can eat whatever the heck you want, lost a ton of weight, save the planet and save a bunch of animals. So easy!!

  • I love seeing these types of circuit training workouts!! I feel like I never have variations of circuits and your videos of these are helping me so much! Thank you!!

    Dear Gracious Friends,
    I apologize I made a typo error in the baking time. I had on the subtitle that says 180c. It should be 150c.
    Sorry for the inconvenience. Happy baking! ♥️

  • Long time fan love your recipes and your presentation skills. Have you ever considered doing a twitch or YouTube stream? Take care and much love your way.

  • Hi… usually whn I bake a cake…I bake it for 30 mins…but your recipe says for 2 hours…can I know the reason plz. I bake in a microwave oven in convection mode.

  • The word apricot comes from the
    Arabic it’s like the words “algebra”, “alchemy”, and “alcohol”. It derives from an Arabic noun combined with the Arabic article ‘al-’ before it. The origin of our Italian ‘albicocca’ was ‘al-barquq’… It’s amazing that today in Israel
    and many Arab countries the fruit is referred to by a totally different name: ‘mishmish’.

  • Awesome ideas and love the improvements in quality of editing, just when I think your videos could not get any better you prove me wrong ❤️❤️

  • Hello mam, I from India
    Hope u r doing well
    I just love the way u bake the cakes even I m very fond of baking thank you for the lovely recipe’s. May god bless u with good health nd blissful days nd prosper ahead.

  • I already do a lot of these things but now I know why thank you very much for this video I can’t imagine why 777 people thought it deserved it down unbelievable. I however, am grateful to the info. ��
    I just wanted to add of course not every diet is good for everyone and some people might do better on more keto diet, but this is STILL very powerful information overall.
    Also I might recommend that everyone research Himalayan pink salt

  • When I saw your video on YouTube I’m instinctly falling love your amazing recipe ‘s.. ���� you are amazing shef that’s for sure!!!

  • I tried this recipe it came out well ❤️. My cake was dry and little pale inside. I added 226gms of butter instead of 250 gms. Is that the reason for dryness

  • if ur looking for a low calorie meal my favourite is a vegetable stir fry but instead of using egg noodles or rice or whatever i use zucchini noodles. you can have a good sized portion for around 150-200 calories depending on the toppings and sauces you use:))

  • Good Morning Dear Fions. The Fruit cake looks so soft, moist and delicious. I never try and since too much Time wanted to try. So I Will do with your Lovely recipe. Have a wonderful week:)))

  • Nice video, Helen.���� I have an idea to make this with red grapes. I make a pie using my regular pie recipe except using red grapes and my friends thought they were eating cherry pie. I would guess for the Galette one would simply slice your grapes; what do you think?

  • Dear joanna you r doing a great job.i think this is is the best youtube channel on health and fitness. You r explaining
    Everything on a scientific basis. That is appreciable. ❤️

  • You really want to lose weight and keep it off. Stop eating out. Eat organic. Stop buying processed food. Stop drinking milk, yogart and butter. Buy grass fed and finished butter. Grass fed and finished beef. Buy organic veggies they are not sprayed with Monsanto Weed Killer. Organic fruit. But cold pressed extra virgin olive oil and extra virgin coconut oil. No other processed oils that clog arteries. Buy einkorn flour no processed flour. All my craving stopped no more depression no more breakouts. No more hard bowel movements. I never felt better in my life. I was not trying to lose weight but slowly started losing excess body fat as a by product of eating right now i do not miss eating out at all. And the food has so much flavor. Hamburger tasts like hamburger. Veg have flavor. Fruit is sweet. Stop buying food that is made to kill you off early. Diets do not work. This is a life style that works. No tying of stomach.

  • Feel free to leave out the sugar, surprise yourself with the delight of the fruit straight up. I add a small amount of chia seeds to the rolled crust just before I layer on the fruit, this absorbs some of the fruit juice and keeps the crust crispy.

  • i can’t handle any alcohol in my desserts. I’m a purest when it comes to sweet desserts. I’ll have to leave out the brandy if i make this recipe. Well done, love the cinematography, colors, and finished product. ��������

  • Nooo… Don’t eat those fruits all you want. They have lots of sugar and can increase you insulin levels immediately. The only exception is lemon. ��
