Orange peel "Zopf" and springtime pics

Not a great photo, I agree, but it's the first time our new cherry tree shows her blossoms.

The rubharb is growing...

I'm also testing recipes for Easter. We - being my son M and me - have tried a personal variation of the far more traditional Zimt Zopf. The basic recipe we use is a very simple one, made for our way of intending cakes : a small amount of butter, one egg, 75 grams of sugar and 500 grams of flour, milk.

As for the cinnamon, peels, butter and nuts mix that usually makes the Zopf so nice looking and tasty, we have decided for cinnamon, orange zest, a pinch of sugar and some drops of butter. The result was super anyway. The last slice is right now with me and my cup of strong breakfast tea with milk.
