Peasant French Bread « Favorite Sunday Dinner: Braised Chicken with Sherry & Sherry Vinegar » Tartine’s Currant Scones & Lemon Cream Nov 7, 2012 My Mother’s Peasant Bread: The Best Easiest Bread You Will Ever Make 1,231 COMMENTS / BAKING, BREAD, OLALLIE CAFE RECIPES / When I tell you that, if forced, I had to pick one and only one recipe to share with you that this — my mother’s peasant bread — would be it, I am serious. I would almost in fact be OK ending the blog after this very post, retiring altogether from the wonderful world of food blogging, resting assured that you all had this knowledge at hand. This bread might just change your life. The reason I say this is simple. I whole-heartedly believe that if you know how to make bread you can throw one hell of a dinner party. And the reason for this is because people go insane over homemade bread. Not once have I served this bread to company without being asked, “Did you really make this?” And questioned: “You mean with a bread machine?” But always praised: “Is there anything more special than homemade bread?” And upon tasting homemade bread, people act as if you’re some sort of culinary magician. I would even go so far as to say that with homemade bread on the table along with a few nice cheeses and a really good salad, the main course almost becomes superfluous. If you nail it, fantastic. If you don’t, you have more than enough treats to keep people happy all night long. So what, you probably are wondering, makes this bread so special when there are so many wonderful bread recipes out there? Again, the answer is simple. For one, it’s a no-knead bread. I know, I know. There are two wildly popular no-knead bread recipes out there. But this is a no-knead bread that can be started at 4:00pm and turned out onto the dinner table at 7:00pm. It bakes in well-buttered pyrex bowls — there is no pre-heating of the baking vessels in this recipe — and it emerges golden and crisp without any steam pans or water spritzes. It is not artisan bread, and it’s not trying to be. It is peasant bread, spongy and moist with a most-delectable buttery crust. Genuinely, I would be proud to serve this bread at a dinner party attended by Jim Leahy, Mark Bittman, Peter Reinhart, Chad Robertson, Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois. It is a bread I hope you will all give a go, too, and then proudly serve at your next dinner party to guests who might ask where you’ve stashed away your bread machine. And when this happens, I hope you will all just smile and say, “Don’t be silly. This is just a simple peasant bread. Easy as pie. I’ll show you how to make it some day.” A foolproof way to make sure your yeast is active is to sprinkle it over lukewarm water in a small bowl with a little sugar (detailed instructions below). After about 10 minutes, the yeast mixture will appear foamy as it does here: Just-mixed dough, ready to rise: Dough after first rise: Dough, punched down: Dividing the dough in half: As I noted above, this is a very wet dough and must be baked in an oven-proof bowl. I am partial to the Pyrex 1L 322 size, but any similarly sized oven-proof bowl will work. Buttering and filling the bowls: Dough after second rise, ready for the oven: My Mother’s Peasant Bread Original Source: The Palo Alto Junior League Cookbook Note: This is a sticky, no-knead dough, so, while the original recipe doesn’t call for one, some sort of baking vessel, such as pyrex bowls (about 1-L or 1.5 L or 1-qt or 1.5 qt) or ramekins for mini loaves is required to bake this bread. This is the ideal size: Pyrex 322. UPDATE 01/04: Do not use a bowl that is larger than 2 qt or 2 L in size — this size is too big for this type of dough, which is very delicate. Several commenters have had trouble with the second rise, and this seems to be caused by the shape of the bowl they are letting the dough rise in the second time around. Two hours for the second rise is too long. If you don’t have a 1 or 1.5 qt bowl, bake 3/4 of the dough in a loaf pan and bake the rest off in muffin tins or a popover pan — I recently made 6 mini loaves in a popover pan. The second rise should take no more than 30 minutes. 4 cups (1 lb. 2 oz) all-purpose flour* (do not use bleached all-purpose) 2 teaspoons kosher salt 2 cups lukewarm water** 1 tablespoon sugar 2 teaspoons active-dry yeast*** room temperature butter, about 2 tablespoons 1. In a large mixing bowl whisk the flour and the salt. Set aside. Grease a separate large bowl with butter or olive oil and set this aside. (This is optional actually — I now just let the bread rise in the same bowl that I mix it in. My mother, however, always transfers the dough to a greased bowl.) 2. In a small mixing bowl, dissolve the sugar into the water. Sprinkle the yeast over top. There is no reason to stir it up. Let it stand for about 10 to 15 minutes or until the mixture is foamy and/or bubbling just a bit — this step is just to ensure that the yeast is active. (See photo above.) Now, gently stir it up, and add to the flour bowl. Stir this mixture up with a spatula or wooden spoon. Mixture will be sticky. Scrape this mixture into prepared greased bowl from step 1. (Or, if you’re feeling lazy, just cover this bowl with plastic wrap or a tea towel.) 3. Cover bowl with a tea towel or plastic wrap and set aside in a warm spot to rise for at least an hour. (If you have the time to let it rise for 1.5 to 2 hours, do so — this will help the second rise go more quickly.)

Pane Carasau. "This is Sardinian flatbread or as it is translated 'sheet music' bread. It is really a lot like a cracker although I know it looks much like a tortilla. It is stiff and crackly and in the hands of the Sardinians it is multipurpose. It is simple to make and my version requires no yeast. The most difficult part of the process is rolling it out but after one or two you'll get the hang of it..." from food52.com/recipes

My favorite homemade French Bread recipe! I am making this I love making homemade breads *+*
EASY Homemade French Bread for about $0.25 a loafEASY Homemade French Bread >> MONDAY, MARCH 9, 2009 Have you ever needed French Bread for dinner and had a hard time stomaching the $1.50a loaf? I have! It is hard to pay $1.50 when you know the ingredients for the one loaf didn't cost more than .25! Well, my Aunt Cheryl gave me this AWESOME recipe for French Bread that you will love! It is SO easy and you can whip out four large loaves in about an hour. I always make four loaves; eat two for dinner (we are big eaters!), give one away, and freeze one for a later meal (ex: Chicken & Avocado BLT's, Stroganoff Sandwiches, Pesto Chicken Sandwiches, or with Spaghetti/Lasagna). Have fun baking... French Bread recipe (this amount makes 3 small loaves or 2 large): 2 1/2 c. warm water 2 T. yeast 3 T. sugar 2 T. white vinegar Add these ingredients together and let sit until bubbly 1 T. salt 1/3 c. oil (I use Canola) 5 1/2-6 c. flour (or a little more if it's too soft) Knead for 2-5 mintues and then put in the oven with a small pot of boiling water. The water will keep the dough moist. Watch the dough and punch it down when it gets to the top of the mixing bowl. Do this every time it gets to the top of the bowl, as long as you have time to babysit it (2-5 times). Put the dough on a greased countertop and divide into 3 sections. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray and sprinkle a thin layer of cornmeal on the bottom of the sheet. Roll the dough balls into rectangle/long French bread shapes. Slash tops of bread diagonally 3-5 times and cover with a beaten egg. Let rise 30 minutes (or until doubled)on the counter, or you can put them in your oven at 170 and wait until they are the size you want to cook them at. Once they are to the right size, turn up your stove to 375 (without opening the door!) and let them bake until done. Or, just raise on the counter and bake at 375 for 30 minutes. Enjoy! Dough--can be a little soft, if too sticky, add a little more flour. Put the boiling water in the oven with your bowl of dough to help it rise faster. Cut the dough into four equal parts (or six if you are making smaller loaves). Slice the dough diagonally and white wash with 1 beaten egg. Bake and serve warm out of the oven! You might also like:

New York Style Pizza Dough I love this recipe. I only let the dough rise for an hour and I use half of it to make a large, thin pizza crust right away instead of refrigerating overnight. This dough is so lovely you can roll it out just a little and then toss it. It has a light saltine cracker feel to it. It's perfect if you don't want the crust to overwhelm the flavor of the pizza.
