Hello guys! Let me tell you how did this post! The Blogalline, which happily I belong, decided to start “sharing recipes,” a way to become better acquainted with us and share what we do best. Obviously because I’m always late I decided to make the recipe only yesterday and post today, only a month away from the draw!  😎 This game allowed me to scrutinise the entire blog, which normally would not have done my laziness. I found a myriad of interesting recipes! I found a myriad of interesting recipes!  I plan to try other.  My choice here fell on “Plumcake coffee, cardamom and white chocolate.” I took the liberty to customize the recipe I hope that Chiara didn’t despise! At the end of the post is the link to the original recipe!
