One observation about this making this bread:

I made it the first couple of times using King Arthur White Unbleached Bread Flour and the results were really good; crusty and only a little misshapen (which didn't disturb me a bit!). The second time, I used what I had on hand, which was King Arthur's All-Purpose Unbleached White Flour - not Bread Flour - and the loaf came out only slightly less crusty but with a perfect shape! And very good, too. I made 3 loaves this way and the results were consistent.

Also, I read on another website that Cuban Bread does not hold up well, i.e. it gets stale quickly and to eat it right away. I have not found that to be the case.

I just got a breadmaker, without a manual, and I have never used one of these things in my life! Being new at this, I chose this recipe (as my first effort) for its simplicity of ingredients. The bread came out so true to its name - wonderfully crusty and very tasty! A huge thanks to the person who posted this recipe!
