CRUSTY FRENCH BREAD RECIPE


Don't hesitate to try this recipe even if you are not an accomplished bread baker. It's so easy because there's no kneading required!

Prep Time    : 30 mins + rising  
Bake Time    : 20 mins + cooling

Servings      : 2 loaves (10 slices each)


INGREDIENTS

·         1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
·         1-1/2 cups warm water (110° to 115°), divided
·         1 tablespoon sugar
·         2 teaspoons salt
·         1 tablespoon shortening, melted
·         4 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
·         Cornmeal




INSTRUCTIONS

1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup water. Add the sugar, salt, shortening, remaining water and 3-1/2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Do not knead. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled.
2.  Turn onto a floured surface. Divide in half; let rest for 10 minutes. Roll each half into a 10x8-in. rectangle. Roll up from a long side; pinch to seal. Place seam side down on greased baking sheets sprinkled with cornmeal. Sprinkle the tops with cornmeal. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
3.   With a very sharp knife, make 5 diagonal cuts across the top of each loaf. Bake at 400° for 20-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans to wire rack to cool.
