#10 Lard Cake

Postby Paul » Mon Jul 02, 2012 2:05 pm

Mellow Baker's second foray into the Fat of the Land section - the first was Flaky Butter Buns - calls up the Lard Cake. It uses white bread flour only, a white flour levain as well as a little commercial yeast. It's secret weapon is a little pork lard which Dan strongly suggests you obtain unadulterated from your local butcher and avoid the store-shelf lard block for better flavour.

Dig into this bread on page 158.
When you think about it, all galaxies are far, far, away.

:D I'll pass on this one being a veggie but will be intrigued to read about people's efforts as the photo in the book looks interesting...

Lardy carke is a childhood favourite of mine. So I was looking forward to this.
Amazingly, given the amount of sugar in it, it tasted much less sweet than I remember.
But fun to make.
