How to make it

  • Mix together and knead..I prefer to do it by hand espicially if I have 'issues' that day. I also get a kid involved and let them take out their frustrations as well..great therpy and inexpensive and extremely yummy for all involved..
  • Knead,slap,punch..(yup it works) until smooth and elastic
  • .
  • Pour 1T. oil into bowl
  • place dough in bowl, moving to cover then flip oiled side up.
  • Cover with plastic (spray with cooking spray)
  • Cover this with a towel wet with warm water (wrung out,of course..My 'friend' didn't...(,hum)
  • Let rise 1-1 1/2 hours until double
  • divide in 3rds or half..refrigerate 1 half (covered)while working with other.
  • Form into oval..then into a longet thinner shape(french bread type)
  • let rise covered with sprayed plastic and towel. 1-1 1/2 hrs. will be puffy
  • PREHEAT onen 450 degrees
  • Slash top 2-3 times.
  • Put a pan of boiling water on bottom of oven to steam bread and help it get crusty.
  • (place EMPTY (13X9 is what I use) pan in oven bottom then slowly pour in boiling water. use hot or it takes NEEDED heat & energy from oven.)
  • Place bread on center rack.
  • Bake for appx. 40 mins.Until sounds hollow when tapped.
  • Repeat for other loaf.

    Great recipe and instructions! Since I have a long weekend, I am going to play with this! I'm sure by the end of Thursday evening, I will have lots of frustrations and need the exercise!
    Happy Thanksgiving to you!
