French Bread

I am planning to make a homemade french bread. I just realized how expensive french bread is. We consume 2-3 loaves of french bread per week, and that is a lot....lol! So, I thought of making french bread one of these days.

If you would like to make this at home, here's the recipe for ya'll!

Ingredients
* 1 1/4 cups water (70 to 80 degrees F)
* 2 teaspoons sugar
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 3 1/2 cups bread flour
* 1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
* 1 tablespoon cornmeal
* GLAZE:
* 1 egg
* 1 tablespoon water
* 2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted


Directions
1. In bread machine pan, place the first five ingredients in the order suggested by the manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed).
2. When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide in half. Roll each portion into a 10-in. x 8-in. rectangle. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seams to seal.
3. Sprinkle a greased baking sheet with cornmeal; place loaves seam side down on prepared pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 20 minutes.
4. Whisk egg and water; brush over loaves. With a sharp knife, make four shallow slashes across the top of each loaf. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.

Masarap nga yung french bread lalo na kung freshly baked. Iba ang lasa pag bagong baked ang tinapay. Napakabango nang amoy. Maski walang palaman ay nakatatakam na kainin. Masarap na palaman diyan ay yung mga fruit jams at preserves na may butter, yummy, yummy, lol. Thanks sa post. Merry Christmas to you all. God bless you all always.
