A 'slipper' is a low-rise loaf. This is made with a stickier wetter dough than many bread recipes and the resulting loaf is quick to make, has an appealing wheaty flavour and an appealing open crumb structure. Roman Army Bread is our nickname for this recipe which is based on text from the Roman scholar Apicius.
