This is the best recipe I have ever tried for Cuban bread. I lived in Key West, FL for a time and could get bread fresh in the bakery. When I moved back to SD it was NO WHERE!!!! I had to make my own. I found this recipe on the King Arthur website and have used it ever since.

A little once in a while will not hurt. The authentic taste will only be achieved with Lard! Buen Appetito
