Made from ingredients that are very similar to French bread, this variety of bread is a traditional Latin American staple that has been enjoyed for centuries. With ingredients that include flour, yeast, lard, salt, and sugar, Cuban Bread is different due to the lard added into the bread dough. It provides a heavier flavor to the bread, but also hastens the drying of the crumb, making this bread more enjoyable the day it is baked rather than a day later. It is common for many bakers to make the bread without the lard. When the bread is finished baking, the top and outsides are golden brown with a hard, crusty texture while inside the crumb remains soft and open textured.
