Sara and Erica of Baking JDs were our March 2012 Daring Baker hostesses! Sara & Erica challenged us to make Dutch Crunch bread, a delicious sandwich bread with a unique, crunchy topping. Sara and Erica also challenged us to create a one of a kind sandwich with our bread! Here is a pdf of the recipes given to us this month. I made the soft white rolls.
Bread making scares people....including my seven year - probably had something to do with me telling her yeast were living organisms which made her ask if they bite. lol. Anyways, bread is easy to master..really. Sure you "knead" to follow directions but how hard is that? And the kneading part is kinda relaxing in a weird way.
It takes a couple of hours of your life but the aroma that fills your home makes it worth it and then when you take your first bite and you realize that you made this with your own hands...wow, you will think you are a genious and first class baker!! Try it, you'll like it.
The other part of our challenge was to create a sandwich with our "tiger" bread. I made Montreal smoked beef sandwiches with smoked gouda cheese, cheddar, avocado, horseradish and mayo. They were a hit with the whole family.
