  • You can add seeds like sesame, poppy, or sunflower to the dough for added flavor and texture.
  • To check if the bread is done, tap the bottom of the loaf. It should sound hollow.
  • Store the bread in a paper bag or bread box to maintain its crustiness.
  • This bread is best served fresh, but you can also freeze it for later use.

  • To serve, slice the bread and enjoy it as is or toast it with butter or your favorite spreads.
  • This bread is perfect for sandwiches, especially with fillings like cured meats, cheese, and vegetables.

  • If freezing, wrap the bread tightly in plastic wrap or place it in a freezer bag. Thaw at room temperature before serving.
