Telera Bread Recipes?

lestblight Nov 2, 2011 10:43 AM

Looking for a recipe for this mexican bread.

Found this... http://rptides.blogspot.com/2009/07/p...

anyone have one they have used with success?

Also.. in this recipe.. The dough isnt kneaded after mixing..

What is the reason why ? I usually do this when making baguettes to let the gluten develoiop so i get the nice rustic holes ... but whats the reason in this recipe?

Telera bread looks pretty basic and easy.. maybe im missing something here?

    But it is kneaded well after the first rise. Most bread recipes knead it well at the start, and then just punch it down and fold it a few times later. I don't know if the timing of kneading is important or not. In my experience, bakery teleras aren't all that different from other rolls - except for the 2 lines.

      I find teleras a rather boring roll, soft and white like a hamburger bun with an interesting shape. I can buy teleras whenever I want, but would rather use a good Kaiser roll from the US for a sandwich if I could get one! I don't see the point in making them from scratch, sorry.
