Cuban Water Bread

Cuban Water Bread
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 8 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons cold water


  1. In a large bowl dissolve the yeast in the warm water or potato water. Add sugar and salt and mix well. Stir in 7 cups of the flour.
  2. On a well-floured surface, knead dough for 7 minutes, incorporating in the last cup of flour. Place dough in a greased bowl. Let rise until doubled.
  3. Using a lightly floured board, form dough into 2 long or round loaves. Sprinkle cornmeal on greased baking sheet; place loaves on top. Slash top with a sharp knife. Cover, and let rise until almost doubled.
  4. Brush top of loaves with cold water. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired. Place in a cold oven.
