Preparation steps

1.

Step 1

2.

Mix flour, baking powder, vanilla sugar, powdered sugar, salt, egg and butter using a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, then knead on a lightly floured surface to a smooth dough. Divide dough in half. Mix powdered sugar, cocoa powder and milk and knead into one half of the dough. Form each portion of dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 1 hour.

3.

To make a checkerboard pattern, form both portions of dough into ropes about 1 cm thick (approximately 1/3 inch thick). Cut each dough rope into 6 strips about the same length (figure 1).

Brush dough strips with egg white and form into a log with three layers. Form bottom layer into a pattern with chocolate, plain and chocolate dough strips. Form middle layer with plain, chocolate and plain strips. Form top layer with chocolate, plain and chocolate strips (figure 2). Repeat, forming a second log with remaining dough strips.
