Pan de Cristal or Glass Bread was the challenge for March.
I became very worried when the 2nd line of the 1st paragraph mentioned ‘the croc’.
I remember the crocodile bread.
I have nightmares about the crocodile bread – it’s slithering and oozing around the house, looking for anything to devour.
It’s the first bread I baked with the Babes.
If I remember correctly I was offered booze and sexy underwear if / when I joined the group.
Neither have materialized.
Kelly, of A Messy Kitchen, and our host kitchen for the month, says that Pan de Cristal can be a little challenging as the dough is a bit wet. (ahem) She goes on to say it’s a good choice for a more experienced baker but one can reduce the water to make it easier.
Just make sure you have a good, strong flour.
If you want to make the Glass Bread yourself, and it can be fun to, um, stretch your skills, go to A Messy Kitchen for the recipe and detailed instructions on how to do it. Plus you’ll find all the details of baking along this month.
The Babes say it’s worth the effort….
That’s it for March
As always –
Stay Safe, Healthy & Patient and wear your mask (as needed) or enjoy seeing smiling faces!
