Yokosuka Walk



After the lunch, I kept walking. Probably I walked about an hour or less ?

Nice walk along the coast line toward Mabori Kaigan station. Enjoy the photo.

I saw cherry blossom started blooming !
Spring has come !

Hi, i stumbled across your blog while looking for recipes. I came across this Japanese website and translated it using google translator. A lot of the recipes require wheat flour, and I was wondering if you could tell me what it is.

I'm really sorry to trouble you.

Dear alwayseating,

I'm so happy that you even replied me ^^!

The original website is this :-
http://cookpad.com/

I looked through the bread section! The Japanese buns are so pretty!! ^_^

I used google translator and it came out wheat flour. I was wondering if its wholemeal flour or wheat starch flour. Or is it a special Japanese flour?

Really sorry to trouble you and thank you so, so much!!!

Dear Cooking Pwincess,

Ah, I see. That flour is hard flour. Wheat flour, which is stickier.... I don't know proper English, but not the one you use for cakes or tempura. Those you use for cakes are called soft wheat flour and has less protein. ( less than 8.5% ). The one you are supposed to use for bread has more than 12% protein. I checked Japanese wikipedia. Hope it resolve your question ! Cookpad is the good site. I sometimes use it , too ! Enjoy your baking !
