In the past I was afraid of making homemade puff pastry – until I did it by myself for the first time. Then I realized that it’s not half as complicated as I thought it would be. Nowadays I like to make puff pastry by myself, because it taste much better then the bought one.
What I did with this batch of puff pastry I will tell you in the next posts!
- 250g flour Type 550
- 120g Water
- 5g lemon juice
- 5g Salt
- 25g Butter
- 250g Butter
- 25g flour Type 550
Mix all ingredients for the dough and knead 5 min with hands until the soft but not sticky dough is formed. Place the dough in the fridge for 1 hours.
In the meantime mix butter with flour and roll it to a plate with an edge length of 30cm x 30xm.
Roll the dough to a square with an edge length of 45 cm x 45 cm and put the butter plate in the middle. Fold the dough over the butter and roll again. Fold the dough in thirds like a letter (single fold)and cool in the fridge for 30- 60 min.
Roll the dough again and fold from both sides into the middle and then fold in half (double fold). Rest the dough in fridge for 30 – 60 min.
Roll the dough again again. Fold the dough in thirds like a letter (single fold)and cool in the fridge for 30- 60 min.
Roll to a thickness of 0.3 cm and use for your favourite recipe.
