Daring Bakers March 2012 Challenge - Tiger Bread

Sara and Erica of Baking JDs were our March 2012 Daring Baker hostesses! Sara & Erica challenged us to make Dutch Crunch bread, a delicious sandwich bread with a unique, crunchy topping. Sara and Erica also challenged us to create a one of a kind sandwich with our bread!

What a great challenge this was Make a yummy new bread and then make a special sandwich with it. I loved the idea when I saw it at the start of the month and thought I would have plenty of time to bake it and try out different sandwich toppings. Then suddenly I was reminded by a Facebook post from a fellow DB that it was the end of the month and hey I hadn't even started.

So that very afternoon I marched into the kitchen and whipped up the rolls. It's a very simple white bread recipe with a rice flour paste painted on top to create the crunch and tiger-like appearance. They came out a little dense but certainly yummy.

When it came to the sandwich I went with the amazingly creative approach of "what we had" - which was tomato, beetroot, avocado, cheddar cheese and rocket. I have never been a big fan of the salad sandwich, but with the sweet bread and a good slather of mayo, this was actually quite delicious.

Thanks Sara and Erica for a great challenge. I loved learning about this unique bread and seeing the sandwiches that others came up with.
