Bread Baking Buddies January 2019Bread Baking Buddies (BBB): Elbow-lick Sandwich Bread

In spite of its tantalizing name, not all the BBBabes made elbow-lick sandwich bread. I think maybe they got scared by the slack slack slack dough. But those of us who did bake the bread liked it a lot.

I thought it was going to be an easy bread to make. Something perfect to rest with after all of December’s complex festive baking. Bzzzzzzt! W.R.O.N.G. – me, (blog from OUR kitchen)
To say we loved this bread is an understatement. […] Yes, you want to bake this bread! – Tanna (My Kitchen in Half Cups)
The bread was dense and moist but not heavy. Honestly, I originally thought I would not make it again, but then I tried it with Boursin […] the perfect complement to the toasted bread. Much more so than butter. And it made a delicious cucumber sandwich for breakfast. – Kelly (A Messy Kitchen)
This sweet potato bread was pretty much the most challenging doughs I’ve ever worked with. […] This Sweet Potato and Caramelized Onion Bread is so totally delicious toasted and slathered with butter. Yes, the bread is already super moist from loads of onions, but a little bit of butter just seems to bring a little something extra. – Karen K (Karen’s Kitchen Stories)
Sliced, toasted, and buttered: it is delicious despite its appearance. – Judy (Judy’s Gross Eats)
The crumb is moist and the flavor is strong but good. – Pat, aka Elle (Feeding My Enthusiasms)
The loaf looked great when I removed it from the oven, but to my dismay, it had a gummy line at the bottom when I sliced it. […] Even though it had a gummy line at the bottom, I still enjoyed this bread – Cathy (Bread Experience)
[T]hey didn’t lick their elbows but they all said they wanted to…. Elbow-Lick Sandwich Bread has to be one of the more curious breads the Babes have grappled with. […] [T]he bread is great with butter, cheese, toasted or not. – Katie (Thyme For Cooking)

I know I shouldn’t be surprised in these waning days of blogging, but I received zero notices about any BBBuddies baking Elbow-lick bread. Not to mention that it’s cold and snowy out there. But I did learn of two people posting about it on FB. I asked permission to display their photos…. (continue reading )
