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 ^_^

Directions

  1. Oil a bowl and a bread loaf pan.
  2. In a small bowl combine yeast, milk, sugar, and 2 teaspoons flour and let proof until foamy (about 10 minutes).
  3. In a larger bowl, Combine 2 cups flour and salt and cut in butter with a fork or pastry knife.
  4. Add eggs and the yeast mixture and continue combining until dough forms a ball.
  5. Knead until smooth and elastic and dough cleans itself from the bowl.
  6. Transfer dough to the oiled bowl and let rise until doubled in size.
  7. Punch dough down onto a lightly floured board.
  8. Pat out the dough so it forms a rectangle a little larger than the loaf pan.
  9. Slice the ends off the cooked sausage and place the endless sausage in the center of the dough.
  10. Fold the dough over, tucking in the ends so the sausage is completely sealed in the dough.
  11. Transfer sausage dough to loaf pan, seam side down.
  12. Let rise.
  13. Bake for about 35 minutes (or until golden brown, and loaf sounds hollow when tapped with a finger) at 400°F.
