This comes from my very first bread machine cookbook, by Donna Rathmell German. You remember it, the one that's falling apart. The way I see it, the book is just handier this way. You just pick a page and take it with you (at least, if it's one of the first 30 or so).
CRUSTY CUBAN BREAD
1-1/2 cups water
4 cups flour
4 tsp gluten powder
2 tsp sugar
4 tsp salt
3 or 6 tsp yeast
Use 3 teaspoons yeast if you have plenty of time, or 6 tsp if you want your bread in an hour. Dissolve the yeast in the water, then follow your bread machine's instructions, or the ones I've written, accessed by that link over there ------------> I formed this bread into 2 small round loaves. Mark was delighted by the wedges of bread. I doubt anyone noticed.
My dearly beloved really adores this bread. He even wanted it used for his toast this morning. As for me, well, I find it just too salty. Most of the boys really enjoy this one, too, so your salt taste buds will have to be the judge on this one!
Ryan is finally up and about; the prescriptions the doctor gave him for the flu (regular, not H1N1, so Patrick will have to stop oinking at him) have finally kicked in. Thor is happy, because both of his boys will now play with him and feed him. There may even be some romping in store for this weekend, if the sunshine holds up. I'm starting Thanksgiving menu planning this weekend. How about you? Excitement?
