Any Belgian bread bakers out there?
Twenty years ago, I spent a year in northern Belgium as an exchange student. Over the intervening years, I've been able to find or replicate most of the foods I loved there, but I cannot for the life of me find a good whole-wheat daily bread like the one our local baker made. I ate it with Gouda every day for a year and miss it so much. Now I can get the Gouda just fine, but the bread is missing. I suspect that it was not a 100% whole wheat bread, but a "light" whole wheat bread with some white flour, based on the texture of the crumb and the lift it had.
Is anyone here from Flanders, and do you have a recipe for dagelijkse volkorenbrood that I could have? Double bonus if you're from Essen gemeentenschap! I lived in Wildert, Antwerpen province.
I'm also craving a recipe for frangipan gebakjes, but that would just be gravy....
Thanks in advance!
