Pane al latte di Hokkaido 1

Hokkaido milk bread

A special milk bread, prepared with a special japanese method: Tangzhong. Tangzhong is a roux, prepared with water or milk, that has to be added to the dough…..your bread will be super soft and very very delicious. You will get a bread higher and lighter than it would otherwise be. A perfect milk bread for breakfast or for tea time. I reduced the sugar a little, but if you follow the original recipe, you can get gorgeous and delicious small brioches or “pains au chocolat”.

Taralli

When I was a child I spent several years in Puglia on holiday and Taralli (bagels) were my favorite snacks. Only recently I had the opportunity to taste them again, then I decided to try to make them at home. After several attempts, I found my perfect recipe: I replaced a portion of flour with potato starch to give more crispness. Tasty by themselves, perfect with a glass of Prosecco.

Yellow pumpkin bread

I love baking and I love making bread, trying to spend as much time as possible in this hobby. Pumpkin is generally used in sweet cake loaf or in soups. I decided to make a savoury bread, with a beautifully warm colour, perfect for brunch or for breakfast, slapped with really good butter. The pumpkin does not make the bread particularly sweet. It is a  loaf we were delighted with, infact there were only crumbs left after the brunch Try and let me know.

Morning brioches

Nothing better than a gorgeous home made brioches for breakfast. Easy to make, they are a must-have for Sunday morning. It is better to try  these brioches warm, because I really couldn’t wait until the rolls had cooled to have a taste…… I prefer plain brioches, but you can fill them according to your taste.
