As every Passover, at my son’s school they celebrate Thursday before Lent. Here in Catalonia it is customary to eat the pork rinds coca but neither my sons, nor I can eat this coca made following its original recipe, so as usual I have to make my own version at home.
Some years ago I found this recipe and I have adapted it to our needs… vegetal milk, no pinions, little sugar… but for us is tastier than the coca we are used to eat, so it’s a welcome extra in our diet!!
Last year I used only half of the amount of pork rinds indicated on the original recipe but my children thought it was too much, so this year I have make the pork rinds coca without rinds 🙂
Pork rinds coca recipe
- 100g of brown sugar
- 200g of pork lard
- 100g of oat milk
- 100g of water
- 400g of club wheat flour
- 25g of fresh yeast
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 table spoon of aniseed
To make the coca first I have put all the liquids int the Thermomix vase and I have programed 1 minute at speed 2 and 37ºC. After I have added 5og of pork lard, the flour and 50g of sugar and I have knead 2 minutes, then I have slowly added the rest of the lard, while kneading, until everything is integrated. Finally I have added the aniseed and knead for another minute.
After shaping the coca and covering it with the rest of the sugar, I have baked it for 20-25 minutes at 180ºC
