Foodie Friday is back! For this week, our French intern Valentin cooked a regional French cake called “Gateau Breton”.

 The name of the dish is synonymous with the area it hails from, Brittany. It’s a cross between a cake and a biscuit: dense, moist and utterly delicious. It is made of flour, salted butter, eggs and sugar. 

Ingredients 

  • 300 grams flour 
  • 200 grams sugar 
  • 250 grams salted butter (softened)
  • 6 eggs 

Recipe 

  1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 5/6, fan 170°C.
  2. Mix the 6 egg yolks and sugar in a bowl until the mixture is a pale yellow colour. Then add the flour and the softened butter and mix it all together.
  3. Put the mixture in a buttered mould. Smooth the top with a spoon.
  4. Glaze the cake by applying egg yolk with a pastry brush and use a fork to make strokes on the cake.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes in a low oven
  6. Enjoy with family or friends!
