Every week I look forward to seeing the weekly “yeastspotting” roundup on the blog Wild Yeast, but this past Thursday Susan had a post for her monthly Bread Baking Babes challenge. I wanted to get in on this one since they were using a recipe from one of my favorite books “Bernard Clayton’s New Complete Book of Bread”. I just baked a potato loaf from this book last week and was going on about how I really adored this book. The Cuban bread was one I had never tried so needless to say I have hopped on the bread train to tag along on this one. Wow, what a nice surprise this bread turned out to be, and the best part about it is that you can have it on the table, ready to eat, in under 2 hours!! Actually 1 hour and 30 minutes. Seems too good to be true, right? Wrong. So easy to bake, anyone can do this. I should know, since it turned out beautifully and I am a novice bread baker (ahhh, maybe one day I too can say I am a BBB). The only complaint from me is that the recipe calls for brushing the loaf with a little water and then sprinkling with some sesame seeds (I used flax seeds instead). Well, it looked great but most of the flax seeds fell off while I was cutting the bread and now they are everywhere. Next time I will brush the bread with a little egg white for better adhesion. I only made half of the recipe so we would have one loaf; perfect with dinner. Get the recipe here, at Lucullian Delights, another blog I am so glad to be turned onto, and give it a try. Bake on!
