    Red Apple Guy's Note:

    My take on a basic French bread recipe from "Lee Bailey's New Orleans". This version adds flavor with a poolish and is more hydrated. A poolish is just part of the flour and water and a little yeast which ferments before the bread is made, adding flavor. Very good bread. Times listed don't include rising or proofing times.

      Mix the poolish ingredients well, cover, and let sit at room temperature for 8 to 9 hours until bubbly, doubled in volume, and sweet smelling.

      This can be used then or refrigerated for up to 3 days.
    3. 3
      Add poolish and all other ingredients except salt to the bowl of a mixer and knead with the dough hook until all dry ingredients are wetted.
    4. 4
      Cover bowl and let sit for 20 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add salt and knead for 8 to 10 minuts until smooth.

      What can I say for my very first time making a yeast bread (that didn't come from a bread machine)...Delicious comes to mind! I really like that the measurements are all in weight, the recipe will produce the same results every time. The cooking method was spot on. I stuck a digital thermometer in one of the breads when it was time to take the water out of the oven. It only took 30 seconds longer than the combined total of 18 minutes for the target temperature to be reached. Thanks Red for sharing this yummy recipe. Made for My 3 Chefs event.

      The bread is delicious, but i think the flour from the poolish wasn't deducted from the total, if you make your bread with 4 cups, it turns out perfectly. Also, the fat should probably be added with the salt rather than before the rest period.
