Nice! I made this using all whole-wheat flour. It was denser and still really good.

Excellent recipe! I used my KA Stand Mixer to toss this together quickly. The bread is soft and tender in the center with a crisp, chewy crust. DH has already asked for another batch to be made. I only used 4 cups of flour initially, but probably used at least an extra 1/2 cup during kneading. Thanks for posting this delicious bread recipe, Nick's Mom Updated to add: I have made this at least a dozen times now and it is the only rustic bread that has consistantly turned out for me every time- we just love it! :)

in first place, The Bolillo is not like the photograph you presented. The recipe is incorrect. You should call it diferent. Because it isnt Bolillo at all. Its just a french type bread called Birote.

My husband kept asking me to make "French Bread." I told him our oven is different from commerical ovens, it may not turn out the same. So I did a search on zaar, found a few recipes that a lot of folks liked. I picked this one because it contained no fat. Well, I made it last night to go with the Pulled Pork (crockpot) #131018 (which turned out awesome). The bread was perfect. Great taste and texture. I used my KA also. However, I only used 2 teaspoons of salt and will probably add a bit more flour next time (I used 4 1/4 cups and the dough was a bit too soft to work with). I made two loaves and will try making rolls next time. I couldn't throw water on the bottom of the range, I have seen that suggestion before--water & electric elements--it just didn't seem right. So I placed a pan of boiling water on the bottom rack and spritzed the dough 3 times during the first half of cooking, which gave it that nice crust. I don't know how you spritz the dough while it is on the peel, just a little bit of moisture will prevent it from sliding off--trust me I know! This is a keeper... might even visit Santa Rosalia.

Great tasting bread! Easy to make. I used kitchen aid mixer to knead. Family loved it-moist inside with crispy crust. Will make again!
