    Charmed's Note:

    I make this bread often, especially when I want a bread that has a bit more body than a white bread, but not as rustic as a traditional French bread. I think the sesame seeds give it a really nice flavor. It makes about a 1 1/4 lb. loaf. Unfortunately, I can't remember where on the web I found this.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    loaf

    Units: US | Metric

    • 7 ounces warm water (14 tbs.)
    • 1 tablespoon butter or 1 tablespoon margarine, softened
    • 2 3/4-3 cups bread flour
    • 2 teaspoons sugar
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 2 teaspoons yeast
    • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds (toast lightly before adding if desired for a slightly more intense flavor, but it's good either way)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place all the ingredients into the bread machine according to manufacturer's directions.
    2. 2
      Bake using french bread cycle if your machine has it.
    3. 3
      If not, use the dark crust white cycle.
    4. 4
      Start with 2 3/4 cups flour, you might need more depending on a lot of factors.
    5. 5
      My favorite way to get the texture I like is about 10 minutes into the knead cycle I will pinch a good size chunk of dough between my thumb and two or three fingers.
    6. 6
      If it feels just moist and some dough sticks to my fingers, it's just right.
    7. 7
      If no dough sticks, it's a bit dry and add a few teaspoons of water.
    8. 8
      If it feels too soft and very sticky, add more flour until you get the right consistency after about another 5 minutes of kneading.

      BRAVO! Even I, doomed at bread making (unless I use the bread machine) managed this one. Followed recipe exactly, used pre toasted sesame seeds. Came out just as shown and expected. I will double the recipe next time tho as it made a very small loaf (set my machine to 1.5 lbs). Thank you for a tasty easy one!

      Great results. So glad I came upon this recipe for using the French cycle for the 1st time on my BreadmanPlus bread machine...Crusty & crispy on the outside; airy & just the right degree of chewy-ness inside. Wonuldn't have thought it possible with a machine. Don't expect to be buying any more French bread in future...Substituted olive oil (we try staying away from butter) & used a combination of dark molasses sugar & turbinado sugar since that's all we've (used 3 heaping teaspoons thinking these are less sweet & yeast may need a little extra to rise properly)...both substitution seem to have worked...Thanks for great recipe.

      Excellent recipe! I came across the recipe photo and liked the sound of the recipe so I decided to make it .. am I glad I did! I do believe the problem the other reviewers had was that the dough was dry .. I had to add about 4-5 tablespoons more water (My flour is also dry) .. It rose beautifully and is nice and tender, although somewhat on the dry side .. Next time I will add a couple of tablespoons of milk powder .. Thanks for a great recipe charmed! (I hope you like the photo!)
