Ingredients

For the pastry

  • 4 eggs
  • 125 g of Zùsto
  • 60 g flour (for baking)
  • 60 g corn starch
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

Chocolate filling

  • Dark chocolate 120 g
  • 250 g of butter
  • 1dl whipped cream
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

Other accessories

  • baking paper
  • clean, damp cloth
  • Any decorations

Preparation method

  1. Separate the whites from the yolks of the eggs.
  2. Whisk the egg yolks with the Zùsto until the mixture whitens and starts to foam (after about 5 minutes in the mixer).
  3. Sift the flour, baking powder and corn starch over the mixture.
  4. In another bowl, whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt.
  5. Carefully mix them in with a spatula until you have a smooth paste.
  6. Line a baking sheet with baking paper and spread the dough over it.
  7. Bake at 180 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes until the top is golden brown.
  8. Remove the biscuit from the oven and place it on a clean, slightly damp tea towel. Carefully remove the baking paper. Wrap the dough in the tea towel and let it rest in the towel for a few minutes.
  9. Prepare the filling: melt the chocolate and butter in a bain-marie or in the microwave and leave to cool slightly.
  10. Whip the cream and using a spatula, gently fold it into the chocolate with the vanilla extract until it is smooth and creamy.
  11. Carefully roll out the cooled dough again and brush two thirds of it with the buttercream. Roll out the dough again (this time without the cloth)
  12. Brush the log with the remaining cream and create the stripes.
  13. Decorate with chocolate chips, gold flakes or anything else you want.
