Day 62 Recipe 38
Okay, this recipe scared me just a little because it started with a sponge, just like the sourdough bread. And we all know how wonderful the sourdough turned out! :) The difference was that this sponge had yeast in it, so I was pretty sure that it was going to work. Overall this recipe was pretty easy, I just had to make the sponge the night before. And it rose like a champ, overflowing the largest bowl that I have. If I made it again, I would cook it less, because the crust is very stiff. I am hoping that it will soften over time, but we shall see.

This bread gets its name because it looks like a crocodile. I would totally have to agree! My neighbor, Libby, was daring enough to try a piece of the bread. As I cut into it, and tore her off a piece, she said she felt like she was eating Jesus bread!! (I told you I was going to put that on here!!)

  1. Yup, these look just like the pic. Totally Jesus bread. I felt like I went back in history. It was so good. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Just kind of like a beer bread with a warm inside and crunchy crust. Carlos loved this one
