"Little Women" bread
This is a crazy question, but has anyone seen "Little Women" the movie? It's the one with Wynona Ryder in it, made in the 90's. Anyway, at their Christmas morning breakfast table, they had a shiny loaf, shaped (sortof) into a tight coronne (no hole in the middle though) with an orange on top in the middle. Anyone remember that?
I'm trying to recreate that bread but can't seem to find anywhere that addresses what type of bread it was. I tried shaping challah the same way but it wasn't the same.
It was golden brown and shiny and apparently easily shapable. The movie paid close attention to detail, so I'm wondering what sort of late 1800's sort of bread it was.
