Swallow's nest


Makes 10


330g flour

5g dry yeast

½ sachet vanilla sugar

125g sugar

100g butter (at room temperature)

1 egg

1 tbsp of yoghurt

80ml water



140g ground walnuts

1 teaspoon of cocoa powder

3 teaspoons of sugar

1 tbsp of milk


1 egg white

1 teaspoon of sugar


+ honey for serving


Here’s a dessert that I wished to prepare for a long time. My Mom used to bake it when I was a little girl. It seems pretty autumnal to me!


Knead a dough from flour, yeast, vanilla sugar, and sugar. Add the butter at room temperature (it will crumble), the egg, the yoghurt, and the water. Let the dough rise for 1 hour.

The dough after rising

Add the cocoa powder, sugar, and milk into the ground walnuts.

Cut the dough into two equal parts. Roll out the first sheet (30x20cm); brush the walnut mix onto it. Roll out the second sheet and place it on the first sheet. Beat an egg white with sugar until stiff and brush it onto the second sheet.  

The two dough sheets - with walnuts and egg white beaten stiff

Then, roll both sheets, stick them with a few drops of water and brush the roll with the egg white and sugar mix that will be left. Cut 2 cm-thick pieces and place them into a baking pan lined with baking parchment. Bake in the preheated oven, at 200°C, for 10-12 minutes.

They are wonderful with honey! ♥
