This recipe is from The King Arthur Flour Company. I ordered the European-style artisan flour and it was on the back of the package. Very yummy. I am making it for the second time and, trust me, small slices will be very satisfying.

Remove it from the oven, wait 5 minutes, then carefully turn it out of the pan. Allow it to cool before cutting.Yield: 1 round loaf.
