In order to realise the bignolata, start with the cream preparation. For the pastry cream, warm up the milk in a pan. Meanwhile, pour the yellow eggs, the sugar and the vanilla seeds in a bowl. Now, beat with a whisk and add also the flour. Continue whisking until you obtain a smooth and lump-free mixture. When the milk is about to boil, pour it in the bowl and mix everything well with a whisk.


Now transfer again the mixture in the pan and put it on the gas. Continue mixing with a spoon, until the cream gets thickened. At this point, transfer it in a bowl and cover it with cling film and let it completely cool.


Now start with the preparation of zabaione cream: firstly, whisk the yellow eggs with the sugar, until the mixture becomes soft, foamy and light. Subsequently, add the marsala and cook it in a pan until you reach 80°C. Take the mixture and whisk it until it cools.


For the chocolate cream, instead, boil the milk and meanwhile put the eggs and the sugar in a bowl; start whisking energetically until you obtain a foamy and lump-free mixture. While you continue mixing, add 50 g of flour and cocoa powder. Now, pour the obtained mixture in the pan where you boiled the milk and mix gently, keeping it on a low flame, until the cream gets thickened. Remove the pan from the gas, pour the cream in a bowl, cover it with some cling film and let it cool.


Now, you can finally start with bignè preparation: in order to prepare the choux pastry, pour some water, some milk, some sugar and salt in a pan. Then add the butter cut into cubes and boil everything. At this point, add the flour at once and mix well with a wooden spoon. In order to avoid the creation of lumps, mix rapidly and cook the roux until a white patina appears on the bottom of the pan.


Transfer the obtained mixture in a bowl and add an egg per time mixing it with a spoon in order to incorporate it. At the beginning, the mixture will appear separated, but continue to mix it. Only when the egg will be completely absorbed, you can add the next one. Once added all the eggs, you will obtain a smooth and solid dough.


Now transfer it in a pastry bag. Take a baking tray and line it with baking paper. Take the pastry bag and start filling the tray, by squeezing some mixture and forming little dough balls well-spaced and walnut-sized.


Once filled the tray, with a wet spoon, press gently the balls surface, so that you can create the tip of the bignè. Subsequently, whisk a yellow egg with some water in a little bowl and use the mixture to brush the bignè surface. Warm up the oven in fan mode at 220°C. Once hot, lower the temperature to 180°C and bake your bignè. Cook for about 20-25 minutes. Take your bignè out and let them cool before using them.


Now that your bignè have completely cooled, transfer the previously prepared creams in three different pastry bags and start filling the single bignè making a hole at their bottom. Subsequently, serve them by placing one bignè for each prepared cream and garnish with some melted chocolate.
