Lost Bread and ibiza bakeries

Today I passed my windowpane test with flying colors.

 

The strawberry season around here starts early this year. We had a nice spell of dry sunny spring weather. That is all any decent strawberry asks for to taste as delicious as they do in these perfect circumstances.

 

I am making a dessert involving a toasted piece of brioche, strawberries, black pepper mint and honest vanilla ice cream. It's a Belgian recipe. It's name caught my attention. It translates into "Lost Bread" and I found that to be a captivating image. In Flemish it sounds way smoother; "verloren brood"

 

Basically it's French toast with strawberries and ice cream. And that is just the perfect dessert to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary, as well as the fact that we booked our tickets to a sunny beach on the wonderful Spanish Island of Ibiza. I am already hunting the net for info on where to find some bakeries over there. Any tips from locals or savvy travelers are appreciated.

Anyhow. I was particularly proud of my window pane test this time. I should thank Kitchen Aid for it anyway ;-) I love my new baby!

 

happy baking every one

from my garden.  Wonderful!  

Sounds like a very good combination, maybe for the next berries to come.   Sometimes I will just toast brioche, butter it lightly and put thin (ok, not so thin) strawberry slices all over it.  Now, a dollop of vanilla ice cream, or vanilla whip cream would go very good on top!  I got some chocolate flavored mint growing in the garden -- tastes pretty much like an after dinner mint.

Happy Anniversary!

Chocolate flavored mint! I want that too. is your neighbor called Willy Wonka by any chance ;-)

I have to say when I picture you in my mind's eye Mini, you are sitting in a garden that rivals the garden of Eden more and more lately! Please don't tell me if I'm wrong!
