Our gluten-free Basque cakes are revisited by Stéphane, pastry chef at Maison Miettes
BASQUE CAKE REVISITED
Maison Miettes has crumbled a few grains of madness on its cakes and offers us some delicious and original variations. Now you know where to buy the best Basque cake.
In the Basque Country you will find a chocolate recipe for this famous cake: the gateau basque.
Maison Miettes has embarked on this gourmet path and has created the caramel fleur de sel and hazelnut versions. In order to push back a little further the limits of the greediness of this Basque speciality.
Let yourself be tempted by this journey of flavours. Our gourmets are unanimous in their praise!
RECIPE FOR OUR BASQUE CAKE
A Basque recipe that combines a crisp and melt-in-the-mouth shortcrust pastry, the Basque cake is traditionally topped with custard or black cherry jam.
The shortbread dough is made with PDO butter, organic flours and fleur de sel. All the fillings are home-made: preparation with 70% fruit, raw sugar. Particular care is taken in the choice of ingredients and recipes to offer you an exceptional product with this Basque cake made in Bidart.
This crispy shortcrust pastry combines wonderfully with the freshness of the fruit. If, like us, you like fruity cakes, don't hesitate, these Basque cakes are for you!
GLUTEN-FREE BASQUE CAKE
Our gourmets are enlightened amateurs and our task is to offer them a gluten-free product of very high quality and with selected and natural raw materials. The Maison Miettes workshop is dedicated to gluten-free products. We make sure that all our ingredients are gluten-free and we regularly carry out tests to check the absence of traces of gluten in our products.
