It's excellent but the for first timer, they need to specify how many breads you can get for this amount of dough. If these help in anyway I did six

Great recipe. It just forgot the capers (alcaparras).

I made this last Christmas and it was almost as good as the pan de jammon I had eaten the previous Christmas in Venezuela. Although in Venezuela this is a Christmas food, I will be making it all year round.
