Well, docpat & kitchenshelf, et al;
I attmepted to follow docpat's Cuban bread reciipe and instructions to the letter. Interesting method, quite different from common bread recipe instructions. Here's the result: (Hope it's an appropriate sized pic for this forum!)
Surprisingly, to me, it has very similar structure and appearance to a loaf I ade a few days ago, which contained milk and butter. Oddly, neither I nor my wife could detect much difference in flavor, either.
So, docpat, is this pretty much the way it should look? (I used a whole egg wash).
It was fun, and not time consuming.
(Oh, a tip - have you tried using a "dust Buster to pick up stuff like crumbs and excess flour from you countertop? Works great!)
This old coot is awaiting comments, good or bad.
