    Is it possible to create the famed French Boule? I was recently asked that very question. I was a little surprised at the answer. It turns out there is really a way to create this delectable bread. Here is how it is done.

    The origin of the traditional French house is a somewhat hazy story. Historians tell us that it was created in the early twelve hundreds by a nobleman in France named Basques. It was probably invented to replace the roux, which the aristocrats had been using for many years to cook delicious pastries and desserts but didn’t have enough time to prepare themselves. They got another idea and made some roux bread for themselves.

    It’s important to note here that white bread flour doesn’t play a role in the preparation of the original French bread. In actuality, it is not even mentioned in the original recipe. The wheat flour that many contemporary recipes call for is what is used in many of today’s cakes and breads. The interesting thing about this is that while it is known as French boule (in French), it really contains oats.

    Oats are not technically bud, but they are a better medium for gluten to be processed immediately into gluten-free flour. If you examine the back label on a excellent French home recipe, you will see that it contains oats, a corn starch base and wheat germ. One could say that the real French bread is made with corn meal or flax seed meal. That’s not to say that contemporary flour has no place in a excellent French bread recipe, but I wouldn’t count on it as a primary ingredient.

    There are two varieties of bread, that you may recognize when shopping in a French butcher or deli: German and Dutch-oven. Most people think that a German dutch-oven is a type of sourdough. It is not. A German dutch-oven is made from a yeast strain known as levain which is not part of the natural yeast living in our bodies. German bread made with this breed is never bread at the typical sense of this word, but instead an extremely sweet, dense yeast bread with a tangy taste and a great deal of structure.

    For a quick, light toast, mix one tablespoon of brown sugar with one tablespoon of cinnamon in a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of instant coffee into the mixture and stir until everything becomes smooth and fluffy. Line a baking pan with a very lightly moistened pastry shell and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. When using a wire rack, then place the finished French boule at the center of the rack. Bake for ten to fifteen minutes .

    Once cool, remove the paper in the bottom of the loaf and discard the paper. Spoon the chilled mixture into your hands and form a ball with your fingers, then put it into a disk. With a wet towel, gently roll the ball of dough until it is about twice the depth of a cookie cutter and place it into your refrigerator. You can freeze the completed French Boule in an airtight container to keep it fresh until needed.

    For the next step, you will want to make a double batch. Place the finished French Bread into one of your re-sealable plastic bags, then cut off about a half inch of the bottom of the loaf.
    우리카지노 Using a sharp knife, start scraping the bread in one direction, and flip the bag around so that the pieces are coming out in a different direction. After about fifteen minutes have elapsed, remove the slices in the plastic bag and put them in your pre-heated oven, or serve them warm.
