For epiphany 2020, Guy Krenzer and his team propose a tasty crown-shaped epiphany cake based on almond, hazelnut and chocolate, as well as a Bordeaux brioche and 2 classic French epiphany cakes!

After the beautiful yule log, Maison Lenôtre unveils a crown-shaped epiphany cake to enjoy for Epiphany 2020.

This year, Guy Krenzer and Jean-Christophe Jeason, Maison Lenôtre pastry chef, were inspired by south of France traditions. Because in the south and especially in Bordeaux, it’s a brioche that one eats for Epiphany.

Chefs made a puff pastry brioche stuffed with soft almond and hazelnut mix, shaped like a crown and slightly caramelized. As a final touch, chocolate cream flavored with lemon zests and a décor made of candied citrus fruits come and improve the already magnificent result.

This year, you need no mango coulis – like last year – the chocolate cream creating a contrast with the puff pastry is enough. To warm it up, pop it into the oven a few minutes, it’s as simple as that!

Moving on to charms, the crown hides – in addition to the classic charm – a bean to stick to the tradition.

You thought that was all? Nope! Guy Krenzer also wants to make classic French epiphany cake fans happy with two cakes and a brioche available in the new Bastille store:

  • La Classique – the classic cake by Maison Lenôtre will be available, filled with smooth almond from Spain cream

  • La Brioche Bordelaise – to stick to the tradition from south of France, a genuine Brioche Bordelaise filled with sugar beads and candied lemon, citron, orange and grapefruit.

  • La Galette Ananas – last but not least, an exclusive creation with pure PDO butter from Charentes Poitou puff pastry holding fresh, caramelized, vanilla-flavored pineapple flambéed with old rum.

It’s so hard to choose!
