This is the best, and easiest French Bread I have ever made. And I love to bake bread. Sprinkle yeast over warm water. Stir until dissolved. Put sugar, fat, and salt in a bowl. Add boiling water and stir until dissolved. Add cold water. When mixture is lukewarm, add dissolved yeast. Add enough flour to make a stiff dough. Place dough on a floured board or pastry cloth. Knead until smooth and springy, (this can be done in an electric mixer with a dough hook). form dough into a ball and put in a lightly greased bowl. Brush top lightly with melted fat. Cover and let rise until double in bulk. Punch down dough. cover and let rise again until double in bulk. Punch down. Divide dough in two equal parts. shape each into an oblong loaf gabout 14 inches long. Place on creased cookie sheet lightly coated with cornmeal. Cover and let rise until double in bulk. Beat egg white until foamy and add water. Brush top and sides of each loaf. Make long diagonal cuts on top of each loaf. Set flat pan of hot water on bottom rack of oven. Bake at 375 degrees F. for 35 to 40 minutes or until bread is done. makes 2 loaves Posted to Recipe Archive - 02 Feb 97 by ted by: email@example.com on Feb 2, 9.
