6:05 who else wasn't paying attention to the change in camera shots and thought that he made 2 hours magically fly by with the power of flawless editing. Because I know I didn't 😉😉

I'm using chicken schmatlz when I make this. It looks like a good substitute for the Italian sub rolls from the New Jersey sub shops. My dad is missing them and I'm trying to replicate it. Nothing has come close yet. starting the sponge today! Woohoo!

Ricardo Martinez says:

You forgot a few things, including spraying the baking bread with a watery mist to get that sheen crust that is on real Cuban Bread.

Kathy Lynn Maracle says:

Thank you for such a beautiful bread recipe!

Why must we put corn meal on the sheet pan? Does the corn meal help to prevent sticking, is it pretty to look at, is there a mystery reason for it? o.O

Just checking in. As per my comment last night, I was already actively planning on making cubans today, but with rye bread. After seeing this video, those plans were changed to use this bread recipe. Well, the deed is done, and dare I say this is one of the best cubans I've ever had. I absolutely love the crunch this bread developed. Far, far more than any other bread I've ever tried. Maybe that's the lard factor? You know I didn't skip out on that! A++, Chef; thanks for the recipe!

Leggings Are Pants says:
