1/4 Photos of Danish-French Bread (Franskbrod)
3 hrs 40 mins
This is my own creation of a Danish French bread called Franskbrod. I missed it so much here in Canada, that I got down to business and experimented enough to have it down right... Enjoy with homemade peach jam, or some Danish Havarti. Velbekomme!
