Bread like a cake…

A creamy rye bread dough (2/3 bread flour, 1/3 white flour), plus cane sugar, plus lots of cinnamon, plus sesame, plus cocoa mass (100%) chips, plus dry apricots…

Topped with almond slices, cinnamon, sugar.

I’ve let raise too much before baking, but only the shape is affected.

Modern yaki

DSC03639-001

Third dish of the hot plate fiesta at Emi’s. You’ve seen :
okonomiyaki and her yakisoba. Now we are mixing both.
That’s not something she usually does, but modan-yaki (modern yaki) is a regular offer in Osaka’s okonomiyaki places.

If you have a huge hot plate, you can make it all on it. Otherwise, you can stir-fry the noodles in a frying pan with pork breast and Worcester sauce.

Then on the plate, grill the noodles and more thin slices of pork belly.
