La salée au sucre (literally, sugar salt) is a sweet round bun topped with a mixture of sugar, cream, and vanilla and/or butter, and/or beaten egg. Especially popular in French-speaking Switzerland, the family of leavened cream cakes has illustrious representatives such as the Vully cake, the Goumoens cut and the totché. Salted with sugar is the simplest form, the flattest, and the most widespread. Present in many bakeries in French-speaking Switzerland, it is even essential in the canton of Vaud, which seems to be its epicenter.
