All year round
- 4 eggs

Beat the eggs, yolk, vanilla, flavourings and salt together with the sugar.
Sieve the flours.
Melt the butter in a bain-marie, along with the cream.
When the egg mixture is firm, carefully add the flours.
Take a little bit of the dough and work it into the butter/cream mixture. Add a bit more.
Mix everything together very carefully.
Bake at 350° for approx. 15 minutes.
Spread the mixture onto a baking tray covered with greaseproof paper (so it’s ½ in thick).
Bake at 350° for approx. 10/15 minutes.
Leave to cool, then cut out 1 ½ x 1 ½ in squares (there should be 30 pieces).
One portion corresponds to 3 squares. Spread 1 tsp Nutella on each square (total 1 tbsp) and top with two little pieces of strawberry, ½ a hazelnut, a slice of kiwi and a slice of banana.
