Basic French Bread

As simple and basic a bread can be….

Here is a simple recipe for French Bread that I use with the Bruchetta recipe posted a few weeks ago.  I received several emails for it from customers so thought I would share with all. I use the roller and scraper.  This is quite a small batch and i often double it.  As you can  see above a single batch makes a couple nice sized loaves.

  •  1 ½ TBSP YEAST
  • 1 ½ TSP SALT

Pour warm water into mixer, add about 2 cups of flour and with mixer set quite low add the yeast.  Once yeast is wet add another 2 cups of flour and salt.  Blend for a few minutes with speed dial at about 3:00 o’clock. Slowly add more flour using most until dough is nice consistency just a touch tacky but leaving go of the roller and wall. Set timer for 5 minutes with dial still at about the 3:00 o’clock position continue to mix.  Remove roller and scraper. Then cover with lid and allow to rise till double, replace roller and scraper, knead for about a minute cutting through dough with roller if desired to get things going.  Remove dough and make into 2 long loaves allow to rise till double and bake in 425⁰ oven for about 20 – 25 minutes till done.
