Where has January gone?
Work projects. And a disabled dog. And a large box of weekly vegetables. And some baking. Mostly work.
Thankfully, this month, Ilva, one of the Bread Baking Babes, chose a simple and delicious bread.
My only deviation was that my initial rise took more like 30 minutes than 15 minutes. I know the house was on the cool side, so, perhaps that's the reason.
Regardless, the bread was a success and the method was so intriguing that I will definitely be making it again.
For the Cuban Bread recipe, head over to Ilva's blog or check out the blogs of the other Babes. I highly recommend giving this bread a try.
(Oh yeah. I was clearly skimpy with the poppy seeds. I figured they would all fall off anyway, so was surprised when they stuck.)
