French Peasant Bread Recipe

I don't have a picture for this one, but trust me you won't care. This bread is so so easy and so incredibly good. Everyone that has tried it has asked me for the recipe.

The ingredients go in a mix with a large spoon and let rise..then you flour your hands and take the big blob and separate it into two pieces....set it on a cookie sheet let it rise and bake. Read the recipe for specifics, but really that's about all it takes. It's so so good.

French Peasant Bread

1 Package Dry Yeast

2 Cups Warm Water

1 Tablespoon Sugar

2 Teaspoons Salt

4 Cups Flour


Corn Meal

Melted Butter

Place yeast, water, sugar and salt in warm bowl and stir until dissolved. Add flour and stir until blended. Do no knead. Cover and let rise one hour or until doubled in size. Flour hands, remove dough from the bowl and place in 2 rounds on an oiled cookie sheet sprinkled with corn meal. Let rise an additional hour. Brush the top with melted butter and bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees and cook an additional 15 minutes. Remove from oven and brush again with butter. Serve warm.
