I’ve seen people both on this board and elsewhere comment that "American bread is sweet " but I’ve never known exactly what they mean. Are they talking about Wonder bread/other supermarket white breads - which in my opinion is terrible bread, but I wouldn’t call them sweet. Are they talking about things like banana nut bread or cornbread - which are fairly sweet, but they are more of a *Viennoiserie ** than bread. Does Tuscan bread in the US add sugar to replace the missing salt? Is it something else I haven’t thought of?
Please help- it’s been driving me crazy for years.
- a baked good that is somewhere between bread and pastry - it contains ingredients like milk, eggs, butter and/or sugar. Examples are brioche, croissants ,danishes
