I got this recipe from an old English teacher of mine. It is a bread from medieval times. It is a dry bread with a sausage stuck in the middle. I don't know what it is, but every boy in my class seemed to love this recipe while the girls were impartial. Haha I guess that's the way things go ^_^
- 1 tablespoon yeast
- 1⁄4 cup warm milk
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 2 cups flour
- 1⁄2 cup butter, cut
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups flour, plus
- 2 teaspoons flour
- 1 cooked sausage (6-7 inchs long)
- Oil a bowl and a bread loaf pan.
- In a small bowl combine yeast, milk, sugar, and 2 teaspoons flour and let proof until foamy (about 10 minutes).
- In a larger bowl, Combine 2 cups flour and salt and cut in butter with a fork or pastry knife.
- Add eggs and the yeast mixture and continue combining until dough forms a ball.
- Knead until smooth and elastic and dough cleans itself from the bowl.
- Transfer dough to the oiled bowl and let rise until doubled in size.
- Punch dough down onto a lightly floured board.
- Pat out the dough so it forms a rectangle a little larger than the loaf pan.
- Slice the ends off the cooked sausage and place the endless sausage in the center of the dough.
- Fold the dough over, tucking in the ends so the sausage is completely sealed in the dough.
- Transfer sausage dough to loaf pan, seam side down.
- Let rise.
- Bake for about 35 minutes (or until golden brown, and loaf sounds hollow when tapped with a finger) at 400°F.
