|I think I let this rise too long. A little funky looking|
I bake. Call it a leftover from my infatuation with Laura Ingalls Wilder.
Since discovering store bought bread doesn't sit well with me, I started making more bread.
In combination with my other blog, Unicorn Bell, I am posting a couple of my favorites. Plus the only wheat product I use now, King Arthur.
Although this is a French bread-type loaf, I don't usually do the spraying with water etc that goes along with making it more authentic. I like the taste and simplicity but not the work.
For a bread machine:
Add in this order:
1 C warm water
1 T sugar
1 t salt
2 3/4 C bread flour
Make a well in flour and Add, 1 1/2 t yeast.
Set machine on dough. Mine takes 90 minutes to mix, knead, and rise.
Form two loaves, or baguettes and place on greased cookie sheets. Slash tops with sharp knife.
Cover and let rise 30 minutes.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
