Has it really been that long since we made the crocodile bread?
The dough that I thought was going to escape the pantry and devour the village?
If I remember correctly, Lien was the host kitchen for that one, too.
This one may be unpronounceable, but, by all appearances, it’s a much tamer dough to tangle with.
The recipe comes from Brittany, by way of the Great British Bake Off.
And I quote: “They’re called Kouign amann, (pronounced [,kwiɲˈamɑ̃nː]) and they’re layered (a bit like puff pastry) with a sprinkle of sugar in the last layer, so it gets a crispy topping. The standard version is a larger round cake, but for this recipe you bake them in a muffin tin and fold them in so they look like a 4 leaf clover on top.”
You can get the whole story from Lien, of Notitie van Lien, our host kitchen for this anniversary month, as well as the recipe, photos and the scoop on being a Bread Baking Buddy..
For those interested in making these I have to say there was hardly any complaining this month from the Babes in Aprons – and a lot of ‘I can’t believe we ate them all but they were so good’ comments.
Best be careful Babes…. don’t want those aprons to get snug.
