Christmas Bread

This was the bread that I brought for Christmas with Matt's parents. It's Rose Levy Berenbaum's mushroom bread from The Bread Bible, and it has duxelles in it. Duxelles are chopped mushrooms sauteed in garlic and butter for a long time. The idea was that if I baked it in a coffee can it would take the shape of a mushroom. Sort of. Um.

It was very good, and better toasted. The mushroom/garlic flavor wasn't pronounced-maybe next time I would use a mushroom broth instead of the water to intensify.

Love the bread. It sounds delicious. The shape is, eh, different.
