Blueberry Dutch Baby

Chef John’s Blueberry Dutch Baby

Ingredients :

  • 1/2 cup packed all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup milk, at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons clarified butter, melted
  •  1/3 cup fresh blueberries, or more to taste
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 Meyer lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup, or to taste (optional)

Directions :

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Combine flour, salt, vanilla extract, eggs, and milk in a high-speed blender. Blend on high speed until completely smooth and very thin, about 1 minute.
  3. Heat a 9- or 10-inch cast iron skillet over high heat. Pour clarified butter into the skillet and use a pastry brush to grease the sides. Heat butter until just starting to smoke.
  4. Quickly and carefully pour the batter into the center of the skillet, then sprinkle blueberries over top. Transfer skillet to the center of the preheated oven and bake until browned and nicely puffed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  5. Carefully remove from the oven and immediately brush the top with melted butter. Squeeze lemon juice over top as Dutch baby deflates. Dust with powdered sugar.
  6. Cut in wedges to serve and drizzle with maple syrup.

Muffins anglais

Source : https://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/bas-best-english-muffins

Ingredients :

  • 1 ¼-ounce envelope active dry yeast (about 2¼ teaspoons)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk, warmed
  • 4 tablespoons (½ stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3½ cups unbleached bread flour, divided, plus more
  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  • Cornmeal (for dusting)

Directions :

  1. Whisk yeast, sugar, and 1 cup warm water in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook. Let sit until foamy, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add buttermilk, butter, oil, salt, and 3½ cups flour and beat on low speed until a shaggy dough forms. Increase speed to medium and beat until dough is smooth and begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl, but is very wet and sticky, about 5 minutes.
  3. Spray a medium bowl with nonstick spray, transfer dough to greased bowl, and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Chill overnight (the cold rise makes the dough easier to handle, produces better flavor, and creates more nooks and crannies).
  4. Dust 2 parchment-lined rimmed baking sheets generously with cornmeal (you want to cover all the parchment). Spray a clean work surface with nonstick spray, turn out dough, then spray dough.
  5. Using a bench scraper, divide dough into 12 equal pieces (they should be about 3 oz. each). Working with 1 piece at a time and using bench scraper, fold dough inward onto itself on 4 sides. Turn dough over with bench scraper so that folds are underneath and transfer to prepared sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, spacing evenly on sheets.
  6. Sprinkle each piece with cornmeal. Spray plastic wrap with nonstick spray and loosely cover baking sheets, oiled side down. Let sit at room temperature until dough is nearly doubled in size, 60–70 minutes.
  7. Heat a large skillet or griddle, preferably cast iron, over low. Place another rimmed baking sheet in the center of oven and preheat to 350°. Working in 2–3 batches and keeping remaining dough covered, slide 2 thin metal spatulas from opposite sides underneath dough, also getting underneath cornmeal to avoid sticking or deflating dough, and transfer to skillet (do not overcrowd). Cook until bottoms are dark golden brown, 5–7 minutes. Turn and cook until other side is dark golden brown, 5–7 minutes. Using spatula, transfer muffins to preheated sheet in oven and bake until cooked through and sides are dry to the touch but still spring back, 5–10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining dough. Let muffins cool at least 30 minutes before splitting with a fork and serving.
  8. Do Ahead: English muffins can be made 1 day ahead. Let cool and store in a resealable plastic bag at room temperature. Toast lightly before serving.

  • 2 c. à thé ( 10 ml ) de romarin frais haché finement (facultatif)

Préparation :

Si vous n’utilisez pas le babeurre, ajouter le jus de citron au lait et réserver sur le comptoir 15 minutes, puis ajouter le sirop d’érable. Sinon, ajouter le sirop d’érable au babeurre

Préchauffer le four à 350 ºF.

Beurrer et fariner les moules.

Dans un grand bol, mélanger le reste des ingrédients. Ajouter le liquide et mélanger juste ce qu’il faut pour incorporer tous les ingrédients, sans plus. Répartir dans les moules.

Cuire 35 minutes. Démouler les pains et laisser refroidir complètement. Emballer dans du papier aluminium et réfrigérer ou congeler une trentaine de minutes avant de couper en fines tranches à l’aide d’un couteau dentelé.

Chauffer le four à 300 ºF.

Déposer les tranches sur 2 plaques et cuire environ 15 à 20 minutes de chaque côté, ou jusqu’à ce que les tranches soient croustillantes, en prenant soin de changer la position des plaques à mi-cuisson.

Servir les craquelins chauds avec du beurre, ou froids avec du fromage.

Ils se conserveront une à deux semaines dans un contenant hermétique.

NOTE
Les petits pains peuvent aussi être congelés, puis tranchés et cuits au moment désiré. Pour obtenir des craquelins plus secs, réduire la quantité de canneberges et d’abricots de moitié.

Pain à l’avoine et érable

Source : http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/vermont-whole-wheat-oatmeal-honey-bread-recipe

Note : La recette originale donne 2 pains, faire la moitié de la recette pour un seul pain.Pour faire la farine d’avoine, on passe de l’avoine en flocons dans le mélangeur.

Ingredients

Directions

1) In a large mixing bowl, combine the water, oats, maple or brown sugar, honey, butter, salt, and cinnamon. Let cool to lukewarm, about 10 to 15 minutes.

2) Add the yeast and flours, stirring to form a rough dough. Knead (about 10 minutes by hand, 5 to 7 minutes by machine) until the dough is smooth and satiny.

3) Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl, cover the bowl with lightly greased plastic wrap, and allow the dough to rise for 1 hour. Since the dough is warm to begin with (from the boiling water), it should become quite puffy.

4) Divide the dough in half, and shape each half into a loaf. Place the loaves in two greased 8 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ bread pans.

5) Cover the pans with lightly greased plastic wrap and allow the loaves to rise until they’ve crowned about 1″ over the rim of the pan, about 60 to 90 minutes.

6) Bake the loaves in a preheated 350°F oven for 35 to 40 minutes, tenting them lightly with aluminum foil after 25 minutes, to prevent over-browning. Remove them from the oven when they’re golden brown, and the interior registers 190°F on a digital thermometer.

7) Turn the loaves out onto a rack to cool. Store at room temperature, well-wrapped, for several days; freeze for longer storage.

 

Pain blanc 101

Source : Livre The all-purpose baking cookbook, The King Arthur Flour

Note : J’ajoute 1/4 de tasse de graines de lin moulues. Parfois, je ne mets pas de farine de patate.

Ingredients

  • 3  2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour + 1 cup farine 6 grains
  • 2 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup nonfat dry milk
  • 1/4 cup potato flour, ou 1/3 cup potato flakes
  • 1 1/8 cups lukewarm water

Directions

  1. Combine all the ingredients and mix and knead them together – by hand, mixer, or bread machine – until you’ve made a soft, smooth dough.  Adjust the dough’s consistency with additionnal flour or water as needed; but remember, the more flour you add while you’re kneading, the heavier and drier your final loaf will be.
  2. Cover and let the dough rise for 1 hour, until it’s puffy (though not necessarily doubled in bulk).
  3. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased work surface and shape in into an 8-inch log.
  4. Transfer the log to a lightly greased 8 1/2 X 4 1/2-inch loaf pan, cover the pan (a proof cover works well here), and let the bread rise until the outer edge has risen about 1 inch over the rim of the pan, about 1 hour.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  6. Uncover the pan and bake the bread for 35 to 40 minutes, tenting in lightly with aluminum foil for the final 10 to 15 minutes if it appears to be browning too quickly.
  7. Remove the bread from the oven, take it out of the pan, and place it on a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. After 15 minutes, brush it with butter, if desired; this will give it a soft crust.
