Rose Mary Mogan Recipe

Kitchen Aid French Bread Loaf

By Rose Mary Mogan cookinginillinois


I made this recipe for the first time from a recipe in my Kitchen Aid cookbook of Best Loved Kitchen Aid Recipes. The recipe makes 2 loaves, but I made the second loaf into little mini loaves. I was so proud of my acheivement, it turned out just like the ones in the bakery. It was soft and chewy on the inside, and had a nice crust on the outside. It is not as hard as you might think. I served it warm with a spaghetti & Meat Ball dinner & tossed salad. I know you will be impressed too.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Dissolve yeast in warm water in warmed bowl of electric stand mixer with dough hook attachment. Add salt butter and flour. Turn to low and mix until blended about 1 minute. Knead on low about 2 minutes longer. Dough will be sticky.
2
Place dough in greased bowl, turn to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm place, free from draft, about 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.
3
Punch dough down and divide in half. Roll each half into 12 X 15 rectangle. Roll tightly, from longest side, tapering ends if desired. Place loaves on greased baking sheets that have been dusted with corn meal. Cover & let rise in warm place free from draft, about 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.
4
With a sharp knife make 4 diagonal cuts on top of each loaf. Bake at 450 degrees F. for 25 minutes. Remove from oven. Beat egg white and water together with a fork, brush each loaf with egg mixture. Return to oven and bake 5 minutes longer. Remove from baking sheets immediately and cool on wire racks.
