Hope you all had a fabulous New year bash, once again Happy new year wishes to you all. Today's post goes to a beautiful bread aka vegan flat bread from Northern region of France. This bread is almost like the pita bread but with a white crust, this bread is quite often prepared for making sandwiches but somehow the peoples in North France enjoy them for their breakfast too with butter and jam. This bread goes for easy ingredients, an easy breezy vegan bread to give a trial if you are experimenting in bread baking at home.
This faluche bread is a traditional bread with a soft texture, it can be either round or flat but looks somewat like a soccer ball. You can have this bread for anytime of the day with your choice of filling. Since Faluche is made with white flour,yeast,water,salt and oil,this bread is easy to prepare. In French bakeries, this bread is often baked in the oven just heating up before the main baking, see how fast they gets baked. I chosed to bake this bread for our this month's Home Baker's Challenge, a monthly baking event started by a group of friends. This month's Home Bakers Challenge goes for some beautiful French bakes i suggested to the members of this group. One among those bakes is this Faluche du Nord.
Recipe Source: En 2 Coups De Cuillere A Pot
2+1/4cup All purpose flour
1tsp Active Dry yeast
2tbsp Olive oil
Extra flour for dusting & rolling
1tsp Oil (for brushing the top)
Add the yeast,salt in luke warm water and keep aside until it turns frothy.
Meanwhile take the flour in a large bowl, slowly add in the yeast mixture, olive oil and knead everything as a smooth and soft dough.
Transfer the dough to a greased bowl and let it sit in a warm place for 1h30.
Remove the dough from the bowl, sprinkle enough flour in a working surface.
Roll the dough as a large disc with enough thickness.
With a round shaped cutter, make medium sized round shaped discs.
Place it in a flour dusted baking sheet, let it sit for an another hour.
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Brush the top of the faluche with the oil.
Now sprinkle some flour on the top and bake for 10-15minutes.
Faluche should have a white crust, so take care not to bake for a long.
