This recipe came with my Kitchen Aid mixer, and makes two absolutely beautiful loaves of French Bread. I misplaced my recipe book and recently found it again, so am adding this recipe to Zaar for safe-keeping! Make sure you use a very, very sharp knife to make the diagonal slashes. This bread is delicious on its own, for sopping up stew or soup broth, and with your favorite cheeses or toppings. Prep time specified includes rising time.
If you are a meat and potatoes kind of person, this is the bread for you! The velvety texture and rich flavor make this bread a wonderful companion to roasts, and a natural for meatloaf sandwiches. Served warm, it turns a bowl of vegetable beef soup into a memorable meal. From Electric Bread.
This bread is so delicious and will really make your house smell wonderful as it is baking. I've fooled around with this recipe and have done various things (used olive oil instead of butter, added basil and oregeno) etc, so it is very versitle. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
These fabulous rolls are wonderful stuffed with your favorite sandwich ingredients. This is one of those recipes that is not hard to make...but makes you feel a great sense of accomplishment when looking at the finished product. You can either make them into a tight knot, pretzel shape or simple bun shape. The recipe is a combined effort from Thorsten, his German baker friend, and myself. The dough also makes great pretzels. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Scoring the top with an X has some cool results as well! BEER PAIRING: Live Oak Pilz, a Bohemian-style pilsner, is perfect with these rolls!
