Migliacci recipe: salted cakes with fresh cheese

Have you ever heard of migliacci? It is a speciality that can be found all year round in Corsica and is enjoyed with the whole family, especially during festivals. Small salty and crispy cakes with fresh sheep's cheese baked in a wood oven on chestnut leaves. If you don't have a wood oven or chestnut leaves, don't worry, I have the solution! And as we love delicacies, passion and tradition, we could not, do not offer you the recipe of migliacci. Come on, let's get started: the ingredients.

Ingredients for 4 people
-500 g flour
-2 fresh sheep's milk cheeses (700 g each / 3 days maturing)

(Total time: 2h15 = Preparation: 2h + Cooking: 15 min)

-Step 1 :

Separate the cheeses from the whey and set aside. Cut half a cheese (350g) into strips and crumble the rest (1050g) and set aside.

-Step 2 :

In a bowl, mix the flour and baker's yeast and then add the whey gradually, continuing to mix.

-Step 5 :

In a wood oven: Place 3 to 4 chestnut leaves on top of each other to make a support and place a good ladle of dough on top.
In a conventional oven: Place a sheet of parchment paper on your baking sheet and place two good ladles of dough on each side.

-Step 6 :

Place a few slices of cheese on the dough and brown the top with the egg yolk.
