    Taylor in Belgium's Note:

    Witbrood recipe comes from a Flemish Baking Bread book. I have tried many recipes and I think the difference for making it dense and chewy is that there are no eggs and no real milk products and very little sugar.

      My Lord, this is fantastic bread! I made three mini loaves. This particular dough is just as easy and workable as any I've ever used. Followed your recipe right down the line and wound up with a mighty tasty (and just the right size)bread to go with dinner. My thanks to you Taylor in Belgium. You've posted another winner!
