How to Make New French Boule

Is it possible to make the famed French Boule? I was recently asked that very question. I was a little surprised at the answer. It turns out there is really a way to make this delectable bread. Here is how it is done.

The origin of the classic French house is a somewhat fuzzy story. Historians tell us that it was created in the early twelve hundreds by a nobleman in France named Basques. It was probably invented to replace the roux, which the aristocrats were using for many years to cook tasty pastries and desserts but didn't have time to prepare themselves. So they got another idea and made some roux bread for themselves.

It is important to note here that white bread flour doesn't play a part in the preparation of the original French bread. In actuality, it's not even mentioned in the original recipe. The wheat flour that many modern recipes call for is what's used in many of today's breads and cakes. The interesting thing about this is that while it's called French boule (in French), it actually contains oats.

Oats are not technically bud, but they are a much better medium for gluten to be processed quickly into gluten-free flour. If you look at the back label on a excellent French home recipe, you will see that it contains oats, a corn starch base and wheat flour. One could say that the real French bread is made with corn meal or flax seed meal. That's not to say that modern flour has no place in a excellent French bread recipe, but I would not count on it as a key ingredient.

There are two types of bread, that you might recognize when buying a French butcher or deli: German and Dutch-oven. Most people today think that a German dutch-oven is a sort of sourdough. It's not. A German dutch-oven is made from a yeast strain known as levain that's not part of the natural yeast living in our bodies. German bread made with this breed is never bread at the typical sense of this word, but rather a very sweet, dense yeast bread with a tangy taste and lots of structure.

Add one tablespoon of instant coffee into the mix and stir until everything becomes smooth and fluffy. Line a baking pan with a very lightly moistened pastry shell and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. If using a wire rack, then place the finished French boule in the center of the rack. Bake for ten to fifteen minutes .

Once cool, remove the paper in the bottom of the loaf and discard the paper. Spoon the chilled mixture into your hands and form a ball with your fingers, then put it into a disc. With a moist towel, gently roll the ball of dough until it's about twice the thickness of a cookie cutter and place it into your refrigerator. It is possible to freeze the finished French Boule in an airtight container to keep it fresh until needed.

For the next step, you will want to make a double batch. Place the finished French Bread into one of your re-sealable plastic bags, then cut off about a half inch of the bottom of the loaf. With a sharp knife, begin scraping the bread in one direction, and flip the bag around so that the slices are coming out in another direction. After about fifteen minutes have elapsed, remove the slices in the plastic bag and put them in your pre-heated oven, or serve them hot.
