Italian Bread, from BBA Challenge

August 30, 2009 - 4:53am -- SallyBR

Since I posted last week an inquiry about how to change recipes from kneading to folding, I would like to show you my results with the

Italian Bread from BBA Challenge. I liked the results much better, and of course, it is much nicer to handle the dough than use the Kitchen Aid...


Very good bread!

Casatiello = Italian for "delicious"

I'm part of the group baking our way through Reinhart's "Bread Baker's Apprentice."

I haven't been posting here about the other breads we've made so far (they've been great, to be sure). But I'm absolutely in love with the latest creation: Casatiello.

If you're not familiar with it, it's a rich dough studded with cured meat and cheese. And it's out-of-this-world.
