• For a pie dish of 26 cm in diameter


    Make a dough from


    • 500 g flour
    • 1 table spoon sugar
    • 1 tea spoon of salt
    • 75 g softened butter
    • 1 egg,
    • 2 dl milk
    • 2 tea spoons of dried yeast (or half a cube of fresh yeast) diluted in ½ dl lukewarm milk


    Put the dough in the pie dish, cover it with a moist towel and let it rise for at least 2 hours

    Spread the dough with small grains of decorating sugar, or with little pieces of sugar. Press them into the dough with a little stick. Ensure to make holes underneath the little pieces of sugar. In any case do not close up the holes. The more, the better…

    Carefully pour 1 dl cream on the pie so it can enter into the holes

    Baste with an egg yolk mixed with a dash of cream

    Put in the oven at 200 degrees for 35 minutes


    Serve lukewarm with a glass of Grains Nobles.
