Hi
If you find out please let me know also. I have been looking for 5 years no luck.
I love fresh Pan Frances.

Thank you

Thanks for the recommendation, but I have followed these recipes for years and
I have not yet found one that results in the same bread. My largest problem is creating the hollow center. I believe that it is over proofed, but can't duplicate this characteristic. At some point, someone will provide the technique. Thanks......

Ahhh the thing is real pan francés is NOT hollow, the hollow pan frances is the cheap version risen with bromato (not sure what that is in Eng; it is a chemical used to make breads grow).

Wow, potassium bromate, this chemical is potentially dangerous if it is not degraded by the baking heat. However, if this is what makes the rolls hollow, I do like them. But, I hope that it is not what makes them hollow.

Use of Potassium bromate has been prohibited for breadmaking by the Peruvian legislation. At least the formal panaderias should not be using it.

Hi Richard
No the one I did get was more white bread and nor Pan Frances. I am looking for the kind that you can buy in a village in Ancash called Yungay it is more of a sourdough roll. If you have any luck please let me know I will do the same
Thank you

There is a small boulangerie on the corner close to our place in Rimac with some of the most spectacular pan frances in the entire world made fresh in the morning, closed in the late afternoon and reopened with more fresh pan at around 5 pm local time. Its super cheap too we buy it in huge bags but we have a large family. At the end of the day everyone is fighting over the last rolls and I have a hard time keeping the kids away to use the last of them for hamberguesa a la pobres! Never made bread myself but have a great NY pizza dough recipe laying around somewheres.....
