Pain de Lodeve | 高水パン – パン・ド・ロデヴ

This is one of my favorite breads, come second to the french baguettes. The bread making process is no different from making a french baguette or french breads except it has over 80% of water which make it quite tricky to handle but once you get the hang of it….it is an easy bread with only a light kneading process. The outcome is a moist bread, not as dry as the french breads and baguettes. It goes well with soups and as dinner breads. The best place to get Pain de Lodeve in Tokyo (if you are ever in the city) is a place called SAWAMARA in Hiroh, Tokyo.   高水パン。 SAWAMURAさんの「パン・ド・ロデブ」 が大好きで午後のならないと焼き上がらないパンです。 でも、少量しか焼かないみたいで売り切れていることも多々あります。 どうしても自分の家で作りたくて、みようみまねで作ってみた自家製ロデブです。 フランスパンとほぼ同じ材料ですが水分がとても多いパンです。もちもちしていて食材とのからみも良くて、、とっても美味しいパンですよ〜。スープには最高!   Pain de Lodeve Recipe – Bread Flour (100%) 270g Rye Flour (10%) 30g Salt (2%) 6g Dry Yeast (0.45%) 1.5g Water (80%) 30g (Optional – Natural Yeast 10% 30g) Mix the bread flour, rye flour and salt.

Autumn simple fruit cakes | 秋果物で素朴なケーキ

Apples… which instantly reminds me of this most ridiculous YouTube video, seemingly a global mega-hit. Pen Pineapple Apple Pen by pikotaro Check it out…it’s just simply ridiculous. Getting back to my post subject, come autumn having a baking item in the house becomes welcoming. I believe the approaching winter is stimulating the body to accumulate fat and the craving of sweets increases but I like to stay relatively healthy by making my own confectioneries from scratch, using less sugar, butter and oil. Apple used items become frequent and this is one which is simple to make and stores well cold in the refrigerator. 秋になるとリンゴが出回ります。リンゴはパンやケーキにとっても便利。寒くなるとついつい、、なんだか甘いものが欲しくなるのは体が脂肪を溜めようとしている印なのかな? こと尚更、、食べるなら安心に自宅で作ったケーキが一番安心です。砂糖、バターや油の量を調整できるし、何が入っているか分かるのが一番。せっかく食べるのですからやはり防腐剤も入っていないヘルシーな食物に越したことはないですね! 紹介する二つのケーキは両方とも簡単ケーキです。 秋の食材リンゴ。 ルバーブは冷凍してあったものを使いました。   Apple Squares | 紅玉をいれて、、アップルスクエア   Rhubarb crumble cake is another baking item, quick to make and I love the texture of the rhubarb and the moist cake underneath. The recipe is here.   Apple Squares Recipe – 20cm x 20cm square pan   100g brown sugar 57g unsalted butter melted 1 egg 1 teaspoon vanilla essence 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking powder 125g cake flour 1/2 cup …
