The sweet German bread “Einback” is very popular in Germany and you can buy it in many bakeries. The best is the crust. It is soft inside but the crust is a little bit crunchy. It is not comparable with the sweet bread that you find in US supermarkets wrapped in plastic. Try it out and you will be surprised! Happy Baking!
