The record for the largest Breton cake in the world was largely broken on Saturday September 18 at Ty Bodel’s bakery in Mellac. Thierry Sagan, the baker, Florian Michel, the cook, and Jean-François Moëlo, the maker of the mold, have succeeded in their bet to include the Mellacois cake in the Guinness Book of Records. The last performance to date was held by the Querriennois de Tomahawk, in 2017, with two square meters.
A weight of 150 kilos!
It took 560 egg yolks, 28 kg of butter, provided by the Mellacois, 29 kg of flour, offered by the miller, 24 kg of sugar and a liter of rum to make this cake. The latter is 2.20 m long, 1.15 m wide and 5 cm high and weighs 150 kg. Three hours of cooking were necessary.
Tasting this Sunday, September 19
The pastry will be divided into 2,000 shares, half of which will be offered to the Restos du Cœur, which will distribute them on Thursday to their beneficiaries. The other half will be distributed free of charge this Sunday, September 19, from 3 p.m., in the parking lot of the bakery with, perhaps, the presence of members of the Breton cake brotherhood of Lorient.
The Revco association will be present and will have a stand for the sale of cider and apple juice.
