Bread Baking Babes: January 2012 - Cuban Bread

Cuban Bread

January 2012

Baked in an oven that starts cold, this remarkable bread was made using the recipe for 'Cuban Bread' in Bernard Clayton's "New Complete Book of Breads". It takes only 2 hours from start to finish!!

I'm afraid that I broke my rule about waiting until the bread was completely cool before cutting it.

The crumb was a little tighter than it should have been due to not allowing the dough to double before shaping. (One of these days, I'll learn to read AND retain what I've read before plunging ahead.)
