Coburg Loaf

A style of round crusty white wheatflour bread loaf formed without a tin and with crown-like radial slashes around the top.

Charles Harper's 'The Portsmouth Road' of 1895 suggests that the form appeared following the marriage in 1816 of the Prince Regent's only daughter, Charlotte, to Leopold of Saxe-Coburg, the German Duchy. A similar bread style is known in Germany, but is not normally made using white wheatflour.
