Bollycao


I was reading a Q & A with the father of molecular gastronomy, Ferran Adrià, in NY Mag and was intrigued and suspicious of this little exchange:
Q: Do you have any guilty pleasures?

FA: Yes, Bollycao. Something you grow up with as a kid in Spain: a kind of bread, sweet and eggy, with chocolate in the middle.


After reading his description, I thought perhaps this might be a Spanish relative to the French pain au chocolat. But after seeing this picture, I've come to believe it may be more of a kissing cousin of the legendary American "Twinkie"!
