No- Knead French Bread
” I was making a big pot of spaghetti sauce this morning and thought to myself: Some nice crusty bread would go great with this. Then I remembered a recipe for French Bread I found some time ago that looked fairly un-intimating (is that a word?)… so I thought why not?” Pam
½ cup water (for yeast)
1 package yeast
2 cup warm (110°F) water
3 tablespoon Sugar
3 teaspoon Salt
5 tablespoon shortening
6 cup flour
Dissolve yeast, mix remaining ingredients, except only add 3 cups of flour and beat well.
Add yeast. Beat.
Add remaining flour, stir well with a wooden or plastic spoon.
Leave the spoon in the batter, cover and let dough rest 10 minutes.
Stir down batter and let rest again.
Repeat this 3 more times.
Divide dough in half, roll out in rectangle shape.
Cut diagonally about 3 times across loaf and let rise until doubled in size (about 60-90 minutes).
Brush with egg white and bake loaves on cookie sheet at 400°F for 35 minutes.
Yields 2 loaves.

What do you think would happen if I substituted the shortening for butter?ReplyDelete
Hi Cam, thanks for the visit and the comment. To know exactly what would happen, I have to repeat the recipe with that change and then it will be another recipe to publish.Delete
