Hi all, I've been searching for a recipe for many years and was hoping you could help.
I grew up in Bensonhurst, and there was a local grocery store there called Aiello's. Over near the deli counter, they had a store-made bread that I can only remember as "Yo Yo Bread," though as I was pretty young, it may have had another name. This would have been circa 1986-1992.
It was a round loaf with a hole in the middle (as if cooked in a tube pan.) The bread itself tasted fried, though I suspect it was simply baked in a pan with a ton of olive oil.
Inside the bread were little chunks of ham, or maybe prosciutto or salami...maybe all three?
It is definitely not "lard bread," though I do love that too.
Is any one familiar with this bread? Specifically, I'm hoping to find a recipe for it so I can replicate it this Christmas.
Thank you so much!
