I live in the Tampa area where cuban bread is a staple. This recipe makes bread that is as good as I can get from my local cuban bakery.

  1. Place all ingredients in your bread machine in the order given.
  2. Set bread machine to dough cycle.
  3. IMPORTANT! CHECK YOUR MACHINE WHILE IT IS KNEADING and ADD MORE WATER IF NEEDED 1 TABLESPOON AT A TIME. The dough should not be too dry - it should look smooth and satiny after kneading for a few minutes.
  4. When dough cycle is complete, remove dough from machine and shape into long loaf (like french bread).
  5. Place on a cookie sheet and let loaf rise for about 45 minutes or until doubled in size.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until nicely browned.
  7. You can also just cook this in your bread machine on the regular bread cycle if you want. It still tastes great, you just don't get the cuban shaped loaf.
