We welcome everyone with great pleasure. Today our dish of the day is puff pastry puff pastry with poppy seeds. This is just the recipe that can be used in a matter of minutes when guests are on the doorstep. Fragrant, crispy and very tasty puffs can brighten up any tea party and can be easily obtained even by a novice hostess. I am sure that you are interested and therefore I will certainly tell you everything in detail, but I will start with a story.
Unlike other dough, which is most often prepared using flour, eggs and milk, and sometimes also yeast, animal fat will always be an obligatory component of puff pastry, and most often this is butter. And what is especially characteristic is that oil, by weight, goes into the dough about as much as the flour itself. That is, puff pastry and products made from it are high-calorie in themselves.
In addition to the classical version of the invention of puff pastry by Claudius Gele for his pregnant wife, there is also an opinion that the famous Italian painter and culinary specialist Claude Lorrain invented it, though neither the circumstances nor the subtleties of this invention are specified anywhere. The very first written mention of it is found in a Spanish cookbook of 1607. Whether it was the same as today is a moot point, but it was definitely tasty because it managed to reach our days. And our puff pastry with poppy seeds and its recipe are the best confirmation of this.
I do not think that sweets are good for health, but I think that they are very necessary for a good mood. And therefore, I highly recommend preparing puffs with poppy seeds from puff pastry yeast like we do today, and maybe puffs with poppy seeds from puff pastry without yeast, as you like. Or rather, how you love it. And we would love to hear about your favorite pastry and how you make it. We are waiting for letters and new ideas. Your HozOboz!
