Wine Tip

Chardonnay, sweet, 2012
This exquisite wine is the perfect companion to desserts thanks to its sweetness and pleasant acidity. The gentle aromas of the wine slightly set off the exotic fruitiness of the orange.

Melt butter and allow to cool slightly. Then, beat together with the eggs, vanilla sugar, Grand Marnier, and milk. Strain the flour and a pinch of salt into the mixture and stir in. Allow the mixture to chill for approx. 30 – 35 min.
