Great FF Baguette
2 pkg. dry yeast (quick rise) 3 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 tbsp. sugar 1 c. unbleached white flour
1/3 c. warm water Corn meal
1 tsp salt (more or less, this is optional and does flavor the bread)
1 c. water
Melt the yeast, sugar, 1/3 c. warm water in a bowl and set aside. Mix
the flours, salt, in a bowl, add the yeast mix, and then the water.
Mix the dough until smooth, about 5 mins. Let rise covered with a
damp cloth for one hour. Punch down, and divide into two or four
loaves, then slice tops about 2 inch across, 1/4 inch deep. Place in
cold oven set to 350 for one hour. For crustier bread, place a pan of
water on the bottom of the stove for 1st 30 minutes, then remove.
Also, you can brush the loaves with a mixture of egg-white and 1/2 c.
water after 50 mins.
