Source of Recipe
List of Ingredients
1 large loaf
3 hours 35 minutes 3 hrs prep
1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cups bread flour or all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
cornmeal, for baking sheet
1 egg white, slightly beaten
I added about 1/4 cup of parmesan & Italian herbs to the dough batter.. It needed just a bit more water too.
Add flour, oil, salt, sugar, yeast and water to your bread machine according to its instructions.
Set on dough setting.
Remove when signal beeps and cycle is done.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees f.
Sprinkle cornflour or cornmeal onto a baking sheet.
Punch dough down and form into a long or oval loaf.
Cover, and let rise for 25 more minutes.
It should be doubled again by this time.
Uncover and slash the top with a sharp knife or razor.
Brush all over with the beaten egg white.
Bake 25 minutes, to 35 minutes until hollow sounding when tapped on bottom.
