Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 6 hours 26 min.
Special small breads
The method is very similar to the recipe of the leavened bread.

Mix water, salt, and leaven, add the special ingredients, then add the flour and yeast. Knead in the same way.

When shaping you can :
  • Make a 1 kg loaf
  • Cut the dough into lumps of 100 g to make small rolls or baps. If they are for a meal where you will serve several kinds, cut into lumps of 60/70 gr.

Note: For the best way to knead, see: A few tips for effective kneading at home.

Stage 6
Special small breads

Nothing else bread

This bread got this funny name because it's so filling it can be eaten on its own. It's Nicolas's original idea and name.

To make it, dice small and mix together:
  • 120g Comté
  • 120g Morteau sausage
  • 120g onion, chopped the day before and soaked overnight in:
  • 200g water which will be used to make the bread (note: it's not the usual quantity of water).
  • 120g potatoes, parboiled in salted water
  • 100g coarsely chopped walnuts or 50g sesame seeds
  • 4 tablespoons walnut oil
And incorporate this mixture at the appropriate stage (see above). Texture is a little strange to knead and work, and the bread does not rise much, but it's delicious to eat just on its own.
