Here is a simple French Bread recipe. I made it with some Wheat Montana Flour. Nothing makes your house smell better than freshly baked bread! Here is a recipe from the Wheat Montana Cookbook .
Wheat Montana French Bread
- 1 tablespoon yeast
- 1 1/4 cups warm water
- 3 cups Natural White flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons salt
Dissolve yeast in water and let stand for 5 minutes. Add flour, sugar and salt. Mix dough until developed. Dough should be smooth in appearance.
Place dough in an oiled bowl and let double in size. Punch down and roll into a long or round loaf. May be divided into 6 equal pieces for hard rolls. Place on baking sheet and let double in size again.
Brush with cold water. Bake in a pre-heated 400 degree oven for 25-30 minutes. Bread should sound hollow when tapped.
Makes 1 (1 1/2 pound) loaf or 6 (4 ounce) rolls.
