Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 2

1 Envelope dry yeast
1/3 Cup(s) Warm water, 105-115 F
4 Cup(s) Hard wheat white flour
2 Teaspoon(s) Sugar, optional
2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 1/4 Cup(s) Warm water, 120-130 F
Makes 2 baguettes or 1 long or round loaf Lightly grease large bowl;
set aside. Stir yeast into 1/3 cup water and let stand until mixture
bubbles, about 5 to 7 minutes. Combine with flour in mixing bowl.
Begin beating, adding sugar, salt and remaining water, and continue
beating until well mixed. Turn dough out onto lightly floured board
and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place in greased
bowl, turning to coat entire surface. Cover with plastic wrap and
hot, damp towel and let stand in warm place until almost tripled in
volume. When dough has risen, transfer to board, punch down and knead
about 2 minutes to eliminate any air bubbles. Return to bowl, cover
and let rise again until at least doubled. Preheat oven to 425 F.
Grease baking sheet. On lightly floured board, punch dough down, roll
into oval, then form into desired shape. Make several slashes
diagonally across top with knife or scissors. Place on baking sheet
and let rise until loaf is doubled. Bake 30 minutes. Reduce heat to
375 F and bake 5 to 10 minutes more for baguettes, or 15 minutes for
single loaf, until golden brown and bread gives hollow sound when
tapped on bottom. Cool on rack. Bon Appetit
