Sara and Erica of Baking JDs were our March 2012 Daring Baker Hostesses! Sara and 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!
Having grown up in the San Francisco Bay Area, I never realized that Dutch Crunch bread was a local phenomenon. The recipe originates in the Netherlands, where it’s called “Tiger” Bread, but no one is quite sure how or when it came to the Bay Area.
