BUNET or BONET May 7, 2008

Filed under: Traditional recipes — Piera Ferranti @ 8:14 pm

BUNET (also called BONET) is typical of Alessandria and Monferrato , the hilly area around our town.

It’s a chocolate dessert very easy to make. Its name derives from its shape. The word BUNET (BONET) is not Italian but dialect and reminds a sort of  “round hat” that was used in the 17 th century . Generally the shape of bunet reminds this object

The ingredients are :

4 eggs and 1 yolk

1/2 litre milk

200 gr macaroons

150 gr sugar

30 gr cocoa

Even children can make it because it is very simple. Boil milk and wait till it gets lukewarm. Mix sugar, cocoa with the eggs and the crumbled macaroons. Beat everything then add milk. Keep on beating then pour into the mould . Put it into the oven and bake for about forty minutes.

When it is out of the oven put it in the fridge and leave for a few hours.

Now you can eat your bunet  but be careful, it is very high in calories
