Cooking time: 15 to 20 minutes

Ingredients for 6 small pagnons:


  • 300g plain flour
  • 100g melted butter
  • 30g yeast, blended with warm milk
  • 2 eggs
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • Golden granulated sugar
  • Black coffee



Sieve the flour into a bowl and add the eggs, melted butter, yeast, salt and sugar.

Bring the mixture together with a fork, then with your hands and knead well.

Leave the mixture to rise in a warm place for 2 hours.

Split the risen mixture into two balls and press them into buttered sandwich cake tins.

Leave to rise a little more.

Press your fingers into the mixture to make holes and fill them with the granulated sugar and a few drops of coffee.
