Dutch Bread / 더치빵
This morning, learnt to bake this Dutch Bread !...
Dear friend, do you know what is Dutch Bread ? Here it is....
今早，学了烘焙 “Dutch Bread ” 这面包。。。
亲爱的朋友们，您可知道什麽叫 " Dutch Bread " ? 那是来自荷兰的面包 。。。
Tiger bread (also sold as Dutch crunch in the US, tijgerbrood or tijgerbol in Netherlands and giraffe bread in Canada and in Sainsbury's branches throughout the United Kingdom) is the commercial name for a loaf of bread which has a unique mottled crust. Within the United States, it is popular in the San Francisco Bay Area (as "Dutch crunch") and St. Margaretsbury Cricket Club.
The bread is generally made with sesame oil, which gives it a distinct aroma, and with a pattern baked into the top made by painting rice paste onto the surface prior to baking. The paste dries and cracks during the baking process. The rice paste crust also gives the bread a distinctive flavour. It has a crusty exterior, but is soft inside. Typically, tiger bread is made as a white bread bloomer loaf or bread roll, but the technique can be applied to any shape of bread.
