DIRECTIONS

  • Combine according to your manufacturer's directions.
  • Success Hints: To develop the crisp crust that French Bread is known for, use your French cycle.
  • If your machine doesn't have a French cycle, simply start your machine and let it go through the first knead, then stop and restart it from the beginning again.
  • This gives the bread extra kneading time and results in a crisp crust.
  • Because of the distinctive chewy French crust, it is recommended that this bread is served within 24 hours to avoid toughness.
  • This recipe can be made using the regular, rapid and delayed time bake cycles.
