60 g (2.2 oz) Dulcey 32% Chocolate
85 g (3 oz) butter
100 g (¾ cup) flour
90 g (1/2 cup) brown sugar
1 whole egg
4 g (⅞ tsp) baking powder

20 g (1 tbsp) honey
3 whole eggs

  • Use a knife with a serrated edge to roughly chop the chocolate. 
  • Soften the creamed butter, add the brown sugar and stir until it starts to turn pale. 
  • Incorporate the egg, then the flour and the sifted baking powder. Add the chocolate and chopped walnuts. 
  • Roll into sausage shape in cling film, and leave to stiffen in the freezer.

*Chef’s tip: You can replace the dark and Dulcey chocolate with milk and white chocolate. You can swap the walnuts for pecans or hazelnuts.


  • Grate the lemon zest over the sugar.
  • Mix the honey into the whole eggs, followed by the sugar and lemon preparation.
  • Sift the flour and baking powder and incorporate them into the previous mixture. 
  • Add the butter, which you have melted in advance. 
  • Leave the mix to rest in the fridge for 12 hours.
