Here is one of my favourite recipes at automn for breakfast at the B&B. It was given to me by my mother in law, an authentic Périgourdine. it is also called the Millassou by people from Périgord but everone’s got his own recipe…

Ingredients :

  • A 5 cm thick slice of pumpkin
  • Vanilla (powder or extract)
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar
  • 100g flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 25 cl of milk
  • 1 big apple or 2 small


  • The day before or a few hours before : cook the pumpkin in a saucepan with a large amount of water until tender
  • Let it drain and mix it with a little vanilla and 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • Preheat the oven at Th.7
  • Add to the mixed pumpkin, 3 eggs, 3 tbsp. of sugar, your flour and the milk and whisk together
  • Pour into a buttered and floured loaf pan (to prevent it from sticking)
  • Peel the cut your apple into thin slices and arrange them in a rosette on the preparation (as for an apple pie). Do not hesitate to add slices to make a beautiful rosette
  • Bake for 40 minutes at Th.7
  • Out of the oven, sprinkle a little vanilla sugar on the top
  • Eat cold or warm
