A common type of bread in the British Isles and the United States in which the name refers more to the shape and style of the bread loaf than to any particular recipe. The dough is shaped into a rounded form and the top of the dough is slashed with a cross, which is the distinctive feature that identifies the loaf as Coburg bread. The bread is most often made with wheat flour (white bread flour, whole-wheat flour, or a combination of both). Occasionally, the whole-wheat flour is combined with other types of whole-grain flour to create a multigrain loaf. Coburg bread is suitable as a sandwich bread or as an accompaniment to a main meal.
