70gr Buckwheat Flour
50gr Cake Flour
1gr Baking Powder
TRADITIONAL JAPANESE RECIPE: This old-fashioned buckwheat biscuit is one of few sweet treats I enjoy, colourful western-style cakes imported to Japan. It's said to be one of those "southern barbarian" foods, like escabeche and kasutera, that were brought to Japan by 16th-century Portuguese merchants.
It is a simple cookie with a nice buckwheat aroma that has been enjoyed for years and years in Japan.
It may seem odd, but the strong taste of baking soda is just what makes this biscuit unique.
For a truly nostalgic soba-bolo, the texture should be brittle, the taste simple and the appearance plain. Boro in Japan today indicates more cookies than cakes, and also a kind of cookies that are light and crispy.
