This is an easy, crusty, French Bread recipe for your bread machine. It makes a 2 lb. loaf. For diabetics 1 slice/serving is 2 carbs or equal to 2 slices of bread. You can get the bread slicing guide at Wal-Mart for about $10.
padin ,This bread is fab! I just followed the recipe and added pesto powder to the flour mix. The texture, aroma, and taste are really good.
americandemeter ,Nice, crusty loaf. Only thing is, it rises so high in my bread machine, it smooshes against the lid of the machine. This results in a small square on the top of the loaf not "crustifying" correctly.
racheldoc ,This needed more water - I added 3 tablespoons water during initial knead. Otherwise very good!
bloomingranny ,This makes a wonderful, crusty french bread. It was so easy and so delicious!
howardy ,Who says you can't make decent bread in a bread machine? This is probably my favorite French Bread recipe for the bread machine. Nice and crusty. Fabulous slathered with softened or whipped butter. Let it stand 10 minutes before you slice it with a sharp bread knife.
