Lovely, moist lemon cake

Woman can’t live by YEAST alone….

woooooooooooo

This is VERY VERY VERY EXCITING!!

Woman needs a slight variation of the yeasty…………

yummy bum bum!!

We could be pedantic and say that since the crust is a shortbread pastry, then it is a variation of yeasty beasties having a raising agent in it???

No? Ok, good try though……….

but look and you will see………….

The return of the choco-ade biccie…………..You all know I am partial to biscuits at times……

I will now need to send some to my friends in England and Italy…………..Else when I go to Lucca, I will need to pack my suitcase with them and not clothes……

As much as I like these (i think it is more nostalgia rather than taste) I don’t think we will be making these ones ………..

Well maybe if you twisted my arm, we could do an upgraded French version???

Not very yeasty though……………but worth a thought… sort like a variation of the neenish tart???

yummy and exciting!!

Happy Queen’s Birthday!! Bready for Rewena??

Yep, NZ Bread.

I can hear you non NZer’s going ‘what’ ??????? What is Rewena ?

It is yeasty beasty people, a NZ bread.

We call it Maori bread or Paraoa bread.

It is made with a starter like sourdough or an Italian Biga but it is made out of Potatoes and flour………..My uncles used to make it and they used to make fried bread too but I can’t remember if the fried bread was made from the rewena, I think not, I can remember a very sticky dough in the fry pan……….. and I will do that one another day.

Rewena has an almost sour tang to it because there is a fermentation period, similar to sour dough.I have heard of people keeping it like a sourdough starter but I am not 100% sure about this, I would have thought it would go rotten!! Now 2 of the recipes below have a touch of yeast and one is yeast free.

SO WHAT ARE WE AIMING FOR???

Rewena Bread

My recipe is an old family one so I am unable to share it but there is two very good recipes below that will give you similar if not exact results:) Sorry, I can share the bread, the process and the photo’s but not the recipe as its not mine to give!! As I have said in prior posts, Dean Brettschneider, a NZ baker also makes one and his recipe is in his book “Global Baker”.
