Pain Brie| Crushed Bread of Normandy

I am not sure whether I should be happy or sad about this loaf. Pain Brie is a traditional bread of the Normandy region of France and it gets its name because ‘brier’ means ‘to pound’ and ‘pain’ is french for bread. So Pain Brie is pounded bread because the dough is pounded many times…

Tahinli Ekmek | Turkish Tahini Bread – #BreadBakers

After a month long dedication to dosas and pancakes, I am back to my first love – breads, more specifically the yeast based bread. A friend gifted me a bottle of tahini and that got me excited to use it in a bread before all of it goes down the hummus route. So when I…

Pane di Lino / Ground Flaxseed Bread

This is the first post for 2018 and I wanted it be a bread. This week I am posting three recipes for the New Year Challenge in which we post dishes that reflect our goals and resolutions for this year. Mine have to revolve around bread. So I will be posting three posts related to…

Bake-a-thon Round Up

We come to the end of another Bake-a-thon, which is my favourite event of the year because I have legitimate reason to mix flour water salt and yeast and get all excited and worked up at the same time. My original plan was to have all recipes in this theme as sourdough baking but I…

Whole Wheat Bran & Seeded Bread

All my life, I have been a staunch supporter of all purpose flour when it comes to baking bread. It makes a lovely light loaf and easily beats all other flours in terms of taste. Call it destiny or old age, of late I have started enjoying whole wheat loaves a lot. I love the…

Apple yeast water Bread

I have been reading up on making yeast water with different fruits and seeds and it is such an exciting concept. During one such binge, I came across this beautiful recipe in Facebook of a bread with apple yeast water and bread flour. I simply had to try it. So I immediately cut up an…

Rosemary Fougasse

This is yet another dish I was sure I had already blogged about. I searched my blog thrice with varying number of ‘s’ in Fougasse but I couldn’t find it. So the good news is that I have a dish to post today and the not so good news is that I am getting old…

It is December which means it is time for Bake-a-thon when I am part of the enthusiastic food bloggers group who blog about baked dishes three times a week for this whole month. As usual I had big time plans of having a specific theme for this month and being prepared in advance. Though I…
