|Pain au Levain with more Rye|
Today is my own Bread Baking Day.
For BBD#39 of April 2011 we were asked to bake Salt rising bread. I tried a few times to get the starter going, but beside from a bad smell nothing happened. But, luckily some others succeeded
Almost every week I bake bread, but April was a difficult month. The weather changed so much this month it looked like rainy season had started 3 months early. “Normally” during April it is the hottest month of Thailand. The Thai New Year, Songkran, is held in April. During these 3 days everybody throws water at each other. This is happy event because it is so hot, you enjoy this cool water. But because of the rainy weather even the children threw less water. But, what ever happens, we all enjoyed Songkran.
Today it’s 31˚C in my kitchen en I’m loving it. No rain today, blue sky and sunny. I found beautiful loaves made by Natashya
of Living in the Kitchen with Puppies. I made one big loaf and found the photos on how to make Epi at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial
. The next day I baked another Pain au Levain, but with more rye. It looks and taste great!
This is a great recipe, you really should try this
|The other side also looks great|
. Because of the levain you get bread that taste like French bread, a lot of flavor, a thick crust and soft and moist crumb. We love it.
|Epi, fun to make and great to eat|
