Cheese baguette / Long-time dough method

with Elbländer mini cheese cubes


BASIC RECIPE: 10 kg wheat flour T 550 / long-time dough method

The cheese baguette with Elblaender cheese is a specialty with mild and nutty mini cheese cubes baked into the dough. When baking, aromatic cheese nests from melted cheese are created in the crumb and small, gratinated cheese cubes can be found in the crust. A longitudinal cut creates an aromatic crust.
