Top-ranked recipe named "Food Processor Method (French Bread)"
1. Dissolve yeast,sugar and ascorbic in water. Stir cup of cold water into yeast mixture. Add 2 tbls. olive oil. Set aside. 2. Measure flour,gluten and salt into processor bowl with plastic blade. (I have a Cuisinart 11) Pulse to combine. 3. Start machine. Slowly pour liquid into processor. A ball should form in a few seconds, if it doesnt, add a little water. Dough should form a ball on top of the blade. Allow to revolve 8 to 10 times. If dough will not form a ball, add a T. of flour and pulse motor. 4. Stop machine. Remove cover and feel dough. If it feels wet add a T. of flour and rotate. Feel dough again. Replace cover and let dough rest 5 minutes. 5. Turn on machine and rotate dough 30 times. Remove to a floured surface. Dough should feel smooth, not sticky and quite firm. (Do not overheat dough; if it gets hot, turn machine off and allow to cool.) 6. Let dough rest 2 minutes. Knead vigorously 50 times, slapping dough on counter. 7. Put dough into a greased tub (a 6 qt. ice cream tub w/lid), cover and let rise 60 minutes. 8. Turn out onto floured board, knead vigorously, stretching dough into a 14" rectangle. Fold long side to center, repeat making 3 layers. Repeat shaping and folding (this stretches the gluten and redistributes any yeast remaining). Then fold into a ball and return to greased tub (or bowl) for the long rise, at least 2 hours or until 2 1/2 to 3 times in size. 9. Turn out onto floured surface, divide (opt) and shape into a round or long loaf or into rolls. USE A BAKING STONE. START PREHEATING OVEN TO 450FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES BEFORE BAKING. 10. Rise 1 to 1 1/2 hours on cornmeal covered parchment paper on a baking sheet. 11. Brush tops of loaves with 2 T. cornstarch cooked with 1 cup water (cooled). (opt) 12. Slash tops with a razor blade. 13. Slide loaf on the parchment paper into preheated oven onto baking stone and bake 30 minutes. Pour 1 or 2 cups of water into a pan on the bottom of oven to create steam. Dough can be made in two batches and then combined for kneading and shaping. Each recipe will make 2 baguettes or 2 round loaves or 12 rolls.
