Simple and good. Thanks! I added a couple cups of wheat flour to add a little healthy ummpf...but the recipe is perfect! Thanks for posting!
Nice and tasty.i will make it again,it's my favorit now thanks to wildflour5656.i made it today 7 rolls instead of 2 loaves.tomorrow i will try to use the bread machine.
My first time making bread with yeast. I followed recipe exactly. Will make again.
Made this bread to go with the soup I made for dinner. It's been years since I have tried to make bread from scratch. I did it with this. Although it would have been helpful to know though at what point in the recipe do you add spices i.e. garlic, cimmamon etc. the bread is wonderful. I will be making this bread again. Husband really liked it too. I did butter the outside when it came out of the oven so the crust was not so crusty for us. Good Job Wildflower5656
This was a very good bread. Very crisp and chewy crust, slightly dense interior and very evenly textured crumb. I used my Kitchenaid stand mixer to do the mixing and kneading. The first rise was about 90 minutes, the second about 40 minutes, the last was about 30 minutes. I did not use bread pans- I simply shaped into 2 loaves and placed on a cornmeal-dusted sheet pan, then did the egg wash just before baking. Thanks so much for posting!
I followed this recipe to a "T" I feel it was very bland, not chewy or crunchy. Does not taste like any French bread I have ever had in my life, and I am an experienced cook. I will N.E.V.E.R. make this bread again.
This is the FIRST recipe on this site that didn't work out. :(
I made this with the dough setting for my bread machine. It was great. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. I had sandwiches the next day and they were great. Texture was perfect.
