From an original recipe of Douarnenez, Kouign-amann means “Butter Cake”. It is made from risen dough, with the incorporation of salted butter, using the same method as for flaky pastry. The quality of the salted butter and the time the dough is allowed to rest are vital elements in the successful preparation of this Gateau.

Serves 6 people
8 ounces of flour
2 packages of yeast
a cup of water
8 ounces of sugar
8 ounces of butter
1 egg yolk

Put the yeast in with the water and a teaspoon of sugar. Let it rest for five minutes. Put the flour in a bowl and stir in the yeast and water a little at a time. Stir the dough until it's just sticky to the touch. Let it rest for a half an hour. Roll out the dough into a big circle, add flower if it sticks to the rolling pin. Cover the dough with butter cut into little pieces, sprinkle on the sugar and fold the four sides over the dough. Roll out the dough again, and fold the four sides over the dough again. (Same idea as for puff pastry dough). Flatten the dough to give it the shape of whatever pan you plan to use (rectangular or round with 2 inch sides). The dough should be touching the sides of the pan. Brush the top with the egg yolk and bake in a hot oven for 25 minutes. Serve warm.
