Also known as Napoleon’s Cake, Millefoglie (or Millefeuille in French) is a French pastry that consists of three layers of puff pastry alternating with two layers of custard.



  • 1 l white base
  • 40 g Nonna Rachele paste
  • 150 g Fabbri Custard Preparation
  • 500 ml milk at room temperature
  • 50 g invert sugar
  • grated lemon zest
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • chocolate chips
  • crumbled puff pastry
  • powdered sugar

For the Gelato

Mix the white base with Nonna Rachele paste, milk, salt and grated lemon zest, and place in the batch freezer.

For the Decoration

Mix the invert sugar, 500 ml of  milk, and the Custard Preparation in a planetary mixer. Pour the mixture into a pastry bag and refrigerate.
Extract the Gelato from the batch freezer and add the previously made custard. Enrich with chocolate chips and crumbled puff pastry. Add square pieces of puff pastry for  three-dimensionality.
Sprinkle powdered sugar on the surface, even better on top of the puff pastry  pieces.

Nonna's Tip

For a wow effect, create decorated flat layers (like a cremino) in the tub.
