The Bread Baking Babes went a little dark this month.
Lariano is a bread of Italian origins that, supposedly, gets its dark brown color from being baked in an oven fired with chestnut wood.
Or so I’ve been told….
I’ve also been told that the crust should be very dark and a few black spots are even better, adding a caramelized taste to the crust.
It all must be true. I would never doubt Babes
Or Bread Bakers.
(They might not share if not given the proper respect.)
Elizabeth, of blog from OUR kitchen, and our host kitchen for the month, presented this month’s crusty loaf.
This was not her first choice for the April challenge. Initially, she wanted something light and lemony.
Darker ideas prevailed….
Visit blog from OUR kitchen to read Elizabeth’s highly entertaining account of making this lovely bread as well as instructions for being a Bread Baking Buddy this month.
