Baking Bible - Kouign Amann


At first I was not so into these (when we first made them) but these were very good. They grew on me. Especially liked them warm, like Rose mentions.

'The Lulu' was with me for moral support.

'What has it got in its nasty little pocketsess?' (Butter!)
My interpretation of Roses' initial folding of the sides etc.

I don't have time to a wait an hour between each rolling. I waited 20 minutes. 
(But we have all the time in the world down here in the dark, don't we my precious?)

The dough was still perfectly workable. Except for the last two squares that really had to be put in for another five minutes after I rolled and folded the others. Next time I'll stick the whole divided rectangle in the fridge and take them out to roll and fold one at a time.

Reminded me of making kreplach.

I put two or three in each pan since they seemed a bit small.

After a toast in 'The Kafka Machine' (my toaster).

'Is it nice? Is it tasty? Is it scrumptiously crunchable? Yes, Yes.'

My father reading to the kids, brings back memories of him reading me the Hobbit as a little boy.
