The ensaimada revisited - time lapse video

September 10, 2011 - 1:32pm -- freerk

With no possible way of leaving the house because of continuous rain and thunder... what better to do than to see your bread rise in the oven!

In this episode I revisit the ensaimada, that I got to know this spring when visiting Ibiza for a week (without a doubt completely by coincidence also pouring with rain for the biggest part of my stay there). It's a nice challenge for all of you out there who like to have a go at laminated dough, Mallorca-style! Interesting technique, and ingredients as well!

Looking around for interesting bakeries and local bread specialties when holidaying has become second nature to me by now.


My better half has learned to live with it; although heading for a museum of modern so and so, we regularly end up neatly tucked away in the corner of the local bakery shop instead.


Our recent trip to Ibiza was no different. I came back with one of the local specialties; ensaimadas.
