Bill, I have never heard of a cornstarch wash. What does it do for the bread?

The cornstarch wash-
helps make the crust crispy
provides a sticky surface that facilitates attachment of caraway or other toppings.

Thanks. It tasted great too. We ate one pound of it with Danish Bacon for breakfast. Forgot to mention that the flour ingredients included about 25% First Clear flour and that the dough had been refrigerated for three days.

Ever since I found out what I was doing wrong with my yeast in my bread-baking (killing it with too-hot water), I have been dying to try a cinnamon bun recipe I've used in the past but never really got "right". Today it came out JUST right!

I have to say that looks good. I am usually not a huge fan of those, but I would give it a try... do you deliver?

I always do! We run a shop out of our home and have a few employees. I sent a plate home with each of them and shared some with neighbors, too!
