Food52: Kummelweck

The Buffalo-born boyfriend was ecstatic to see Kummelweck bread featured on Food52 this week. After raving about his beloved Beef on 'Weck, we wondered if this recipe would live up to the memories. Success! Not only is this recipe easy to follow, but we had fresh bread in about 1 1/2 hours. Kummelweck is known for the salt-crusted top (delicious) along with the caraway seeds, which are commonly known for flavoring rye bread. The butter and egg make this bread almost biscuit-like. Salty biscuits from heaven. We served with roast beef and said 'cheers' to Buffalo, NY.
