a special dessert for students



Combining baking and study time

Our university life never leaves us enough time to concentrate on something for ourselves or to develop a hobby…wrong! I’m giving you a dessert recipe that has been designed to leave you breaks during which you can study while waiting for the next step.


Before starting with instructions and pictures I suggest you do something: go to the supermarket and buy the famous “Pangoccioli by Mulino Bianco”. We will reproduce them and...they will be even better!


Following a recipe is something you learn by trial and error, indeed I’ve prepared those small brioches dozens of times until I found the right mixture of flours to use.





Here we are!

You will need:

  • 125g of rice flour

  • 125g of wheat flour type “00”

  • 1 tbsp of honey (tbs = whatever big spoon you use to eat)

  • 1 vanilla bean

  • 60g sugar (either white or cane, for the fit ones)

  • 125ml of milk

  • 5g brewer's yeast (the original recipe says 7g, but I will give you a secret to use less yeast and get better results!)

  • 15g of butter

  • 15g of sunflower oil (or whatever oil except olive oil)

  • 1 yolk

  • 100g of dark chocolate (I would say 70% cocoa is enough)
