Bread with chestnut flour

I buy some chestnut flour every winter. It inspires me. This time I also bought some dried or dried chestnuts, which are normally used in macrobiotic desserts as a sweetener. This unusual and slightly sweet bread was created.

Preparation steps

  • Soak dry chestnuts in a little warm water (it should take an hour or two to soften). Fry the hazelnuts in a dry pan or in the oven. Put them on a kitchen towel and rub to peel their dark skin, then grind them coarsely.
  • Mix the yeast, a little sugar and a tablespoon of flour with lukewarm water, then leave on warm to rise.
  • Sift all types of flour, then mix them with a teaspoon of salt.
  • Strain the soaked chestnuts and cut them into coarse, then add them to the flour as well as the hazelnuts.
  • Add the risen yeast, two tablespoons of honey, olive oil and, if necessary, warm water to the flour mixture. Knead a soft dough. Cover it with a cloth and put it on warm to rise (an hour to two).
  • Knead the dough lightly, then form rolls or round buns. Put them in an oiled baking sheet, cover with a cloth and leave in a warm place to rise (about an hour).
  • Coat the buns with a little olive oil, then place in a preheated oven at 220 degrees for about 10 minutes. Then reduce the temperature to 180 and bake for another half hour.

Party burritos

Party burritos

Burrito in Spanish means "little donkey". Although there is no trace or voice of the donkey, except in the name of our dish, when serving burritos for a party, it is not out of place to know the answer to every question that curious people can think of.

Poppy seed rolls

In addition to being prepared as a side dish to savory dishes, you can also prepare them as a dessert. Valjuške not only with poppy seeds, but also with walnuts, hazelnuts, jam…

If the only edible thing you want to bring from the forest is a basket of mushrooms, you’re probably a vegetarian. "Forest meat" competes with animal quality, and even surpasses it in taste, especially if you prepare it for soup.
