Muffuletta in Honesdale



This was probably the best loaf of muffuletta bread I’ve made.  I don’t know how it happened.  Perhaps it was my disregard of rising times because I was too busy wandering around town and the Dyberry Cemetery behind the house.  Pardon the artificial light; my husband, Jade and Laura (old, old friend and house guest) rather churlishly refused to sit in the dark while I got the shots, and I refused to use automatic.


I would like to thank my ingredients; King Arthur bread flour, Morrell Snow Cap Lard and good old reliable Fleischmanns yeast.


Last but by no means least, I’d like to give all praises to my Pennsylvania Kitchenaid that I whined my husband into buying, even though I have one just like it in France.  Without this machine, you’d be looking at this sandwich on Wonderbread 😀  I do not knead nor do I need to.


No baker, I do love to see the miracle of rising dough.

    That is a beautiful muffuletta loaf! Those were one of my favorite sandwiches to eat while living in Louisiana years ago. I’m going to have to make this!

    The light’s not bad, at least the bread is illuminated.
    Your success could be down to the type of flour and water used – it does make a difference. I read a very interesting chapter in one of Jeffrey Steingarten’s books, where he was trying to replicate artisanal bread that he’d eaten in Rome – it proved quite difficult.
    That’s a nice looking loaf of bread – I bet it would go down well in New Orleans 🙂

  4. Nice bread but even nicer Kitchen Aid….one day, Roger, one day:)

  5. Magic. I need that in my life… Lucky I have a kitchenaid at my disposal!! Nice work 🙂
