If you haven't seen this yet, well sit back and enjoy. Imagine sitting down to breakfast or have this slice on a plate at your favorite coffee shop, well I for one would love it. A bread made to look like a watermelon. I have to admit, I'm not a big fan of melons but I do love bread. So when I stumble upon this masterpiece, yes I said masterpiece because who have thought to make bread look like a fruit, I had to know more.
Of course, I've found one. Follow me.
On my search for if there was a restaurant or little quaint cafe that sales this big trend, Watermelon Toast, I found something better. I've said it before, I'm not a great baker. Don't get me wrong, I can cook. But with baking, you have to measure, have the right amount of this, the right amount of that and that's where you lose me. Asked me to prepare a medium-well done steak with all the trimmings, I'm your girl. But I digress, so in my search I came up on a nice food blog with lots of recipes that looks all so delicious, jocooks.com.
This bread would be a great add on to a family's brunch or if you're the hostess looking to add something special to the table. This recipe I'm going to show is for a raisin bread made to look like a watermelon. It's a little different from baker, Lee Wen-Fa, but a great result all the same.
