The bread Baking Babes are celebrating bees this month, using both honey and a flower infusion in this French classic.
Well, almost a French classic. I assume there are the usual BBB variations and additions and deletions.
Pain de Mie is a white sandwich bread with a tight crumb that is baked in a pullman pan.
Oh, you don’t know what that is?
I admit, I didn’t.
I knew that it made a square sandwhich loaf but I had no idea how it worked,
Tanna, of My Kitchen in Half Cups. our host kitchen for this month, has a photo of one on her site.
Not all of the Babes have one so there are work-arounds posted on some of their sites. I’m not telling you which ones because all of the stories and solutions are fun to read.
The most surprising part of this lovely bread is that it’s a white bread – or mostly white. Most of the Babes avoid using white flour if at all possible.
To get the whole story, the reicpes (there are 2 – one quick, one that needs a few days) and the details on being a Bread Baking Buddy visit My Kitchen in Half Cups.
The recipe was inspired by the head baker at King Arthur Flour…. what a job!
And that’s it for the Babes in the June. Stay Safe & Healthy Everyone!
