Mendiant Bun

Mendiant Bun recipe

25 Jun 2019


A mendiant is a traditional French confection composed of a chocolate disk studded with nuts and dried fruits representing the four monastic orders. Each of the ingredients used refer to the color of monastic robes. Tradition dictates that raisins stand for the Augustinians, hazelnut for the Carmelites, dried fig for the Franciscans, and almond for the Dominicans. A totally new version of this French chocolate treat revisited in a brioche with a soft and creamy center.
