“Recipe supplied by Sullivan Street Bakery and printed in the NY Times, this bread recipe so insanely brilliant - no sticky fingers, no doughy mess, no intricate measuring, no complicated kneading. Totally hands-off. The crust is thin, crisp and snaps as you cut into the loaf. The interior of the bread holey, chewy, airy and light. This low fat, low cal bread will become a staple in your home as it has mine.”
