Chef John's Cuban Bread
I didn't think I liked Cuban sandwiches until I had one on real Cuban bread--what a difference! This bread uses lard and a double-hit of yeast plus a fermented starter. All this adds extra flavor and lift.
Recipe Summary test
I used 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour and 1 1/2 cups bread flour.
Each loaf yields about 10 slices bread, or 2 Cuban sandwiches. Check out Chef John's Cuban Sandwich recipe.
