Cuban Bread p. 23

Cuban Bread is simply a white bread with no fat and it is shaped into "two plump loaves":
I think they look like crowns. They turned out very nice. They taste like nice, white bread.  
I didn't even get close to the 5-6 cups of flour into this recipe either. Are you surprised? No matter, as they still tasted fine, but firm. The crust was crispy and beautiful too.
I was skeptical of the method for baking these loaves - the recipe said to shape the loaves, cut them with an x and place them in a cold oven, and turn it on to let them rise and bake. Surprisingly, it worked! I may have overworked the dough, since the bread did seem a bit dense.
