Basic french bread

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4¾ cup Flour
2 tablespoons Sugar
2 teaspoons Salt
2 teaspoons Yeast
1¾ cup Water

I usually add herbs to this (which I never measure, but about 2 tsp total is pretty flavorful), and top with seeds. I've also substituted or added whole wheat flour(up to 2 cups), wheat and/or oat bran, cheese, oil, dried garlic and onions, even spinach powder (which turned the bread green; I thought it looked gross, but everybody else liked it.) My favorite herb combo is dried, minced garlic (or garlic powder), dill weed, and dill seed.

I use a mix of seeds for the top, usually sesame, poppy, flax, and caraway.

These would look nice in a bow-tied cellophane bag! Posted to Digest bread-bakers.v097.n056 by Lee & Bill <steiconi@...> on Sep 07, 1997
