Spanish Country Bread
This recipe was originally posted in What’s for Dinner January 2008 by: barbszy
Spanish Country Bread for the Bread Machine

1 1/4 cup warm water
1 tbl salt
3 1/4 cups bread flour
1 tbl yeast

I used the dough cycle, shaped into a loaf, and baked it in my Baparoma pan which gives a great crust on a long loaf.

What is a Baparoma pan?

A Baparoma is a 3-piece bread-baking pan. There is a solid, grooved bottom. You put a certain amount of water in each of 3 grooves. Then there is a flat, perforated insert where the bread dough sits. Finally, a domed lid fits over the top. The water in the bottom part turns to steam during the baking and allows a nice crust to develop on all sides of the bread.

Barb, does the bread come out with a crispy crust? I have not been able to get a decent crusty bread since leaving the Northeast. If so, where can I get one of these bread pans?

Kathy, you get a fabulous crispy crust with this pan. Get 2 if you can, since they make a small baguette, so a regular bread recipe really should be divided among 2 pans (though I have done it in one with quite good results).

It looks really neat. I have a stone baguette bread pan I use a lot. I get a nice crispy crust with it.

Kathy, I forgot to answer "where do you get this pan?" I had to go on ebay to get one. Some of them have 5 pieces instead of 3 so you can cook certain meats or fish in them.

barbszy...Surprised there is no shortening in the recipe. Do you grease the bread before putting in the pans? Thanks for sharing about the baparoma pan.

Sueanne, I brush a little oil on the pan.

You can bake this on a cookie sheet if you want; I just flour the cookie sheet a bit so the bread does not stick. On a cookie sheet, bake 35 minutes at 375.

Barb, I did a google search last night and found out the manufacturer doesn't make them anymore - boohoo! I found out that you can only get them on ebay these days. When I checked last night, none were available. I will definitely keep trying, though. I REALLY miss crisp, crusty bread!
