PER THE SAND 'BRETON (doses for a 18-20 cm diameter mold):

110 grams of flour 00

90 grams soft butter salted seeds (If you don't find the salted butter, use a regular butter and put a little 'more than salt in the dough)

a pinch of salt

20 grams of cocoa powder

2 egg yolks

6 grams of baking powder

80 grams of caster sugar


100 ml fresh whole milk

25 ml of cream

40 grams of egg yolks

40 grams of caster sugar

10 grams of flour or cornstarch or potato starch or rice starch

a tablespoon of vanilla extract

1 gram of gelatine (Optional)

100 ml fresh cream


khaki, raspberries, blueberries or fruit you prefer, provided with some acidity


The sablé breton, to be prepared a day in advance because the dough must rest at least 12 hours in the refrigerator: put the butter in a bowl, salt and sugar and work with an electric mixer until mixture is puffy and fluffy. Add egg yolks, one at a time, then the flour, cocoa and baking powder sifted. Work again with the electric whisk until the dough is homogeneous. Put the dough on the work top sprinkled with flour and work it with the palm of your hand until you get a non-sticky dough. Wrap it in plastic wrap and let stand in refrigerator over night.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees static. Spread the dough on the floured work top with a rolling pin, at a thickness of one centimeter. Put the sheet of Sablé breton on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and, using the circle of a hinged cake tin or a circle dedicated to desserts (I have squares, round, rectangular and triangular even, use whatever you prefer) derive the basis of your sweet, that should be baked in the oven inside the mold, otherwise it would lose shape due to the high amount of butter in the dough.

Bake the pastry for Breton for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool, then remove the mold.

For the saffron cream, You can also prepare a day in advance: put the gelatin to soak for 15 minutes in cold water. Beat the egg yolks with sugar until the mixture is puffy and fluffy. Meanwhile, put the milk in a saucepan, the liquid cream and saffron. Cook over low heat until the milk is hot. Pour the milk over the egg mixture, stirring quickly until you obtain a smooth batter without lumps. Return the liquid to the heat and add the isinglass well squeezed: continue cooking, stirring constantly, until the cream thickens. Pour the cream in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and allow to cool completely. Seeds remaining whip cream (not very firm snow) and add it to the cream with a spatula, making a bottom-up movement to incorporate as much air as possible. Preserve the saffron cream in refrigerator until ready to use it.

Assembling the cake: Peel and cut into slices a piece of Apple khaki. Put the whipped cream with saffron in a pastry bag with the tip that you prefer. Garnish the base of Sablé breton with custard, creating decorative Tufts tight and high in an orderly fashion, Garnish with Apple slices of persimmon, raspberries and blueberries. Store in a refrigerator the Breton pastry with chantilly cream and berries until ready to serve. Bon appétit!
