2 Hr 15 Min

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.


2 pkg
active dry yeast
2 1/2 c
warm water (105 degrees f-115 degrees f.)
1 Tbsp
1 Tbsp
butter, melted
7 c
all purpose flour
2 Tbsp
corn meal
1 large
egg white
1 Tbsp
cold water

Directions Step-By-Step

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.
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.
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.
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.

Yes, Susan at that time they had a special promotion going, when he bought it for me. I also got a certificate of AUTHENCITY and the bowl engraved with my full name on it. It is the same size as the original bowl. That was quite some time ago also. All I can say is you do get your money's worth out of them. I am still very pleased with mine.

I got my Kitchen Aid in 1988, so it's been around a while. I didn't know you could get extra bowls with your name engraved! How nice!

I will check it out soon, now I am between making dinner. I want to make the apple cobbler for when the roast comes out of the oven. I am cooking it in my large 15 inch cast iron skillet, and I finally found a lid for it at amazon. It should be nice and tender after 4 and a half hours of cooking.

Name engraved, wow, I am jealous, LOL! I hear ya and I have been dragging the cast iron skillet with me as well, it was my granny's and when it got too heavy for mom to use she gave it to me. I have a feeling my great nephew, Patrick, will be the next to get it. He is only 22 but he is turning out to be a pretty good cook. I teach him what I can when he is in the mood to learn. He just helped me make pizza and I posted the recipe this morning. Bless his heart, there is a heartwarming story about him over at Kim's ST. Patrick's group on a discussion I posted today.

Wow, Sheila we share similiar memories about our kitchen aid mixers. My story is my now husband then boyfriend bought mine as a Christmas gift in 1995 our first year of dating, I knew how expensive they were, and didn't realized he liked me that much, so I was so impressed, I cried. His mom joked that he knew I would always cook for him which is why he got it for me. I even got a second stainless steel bowl with my name ENGRAVED ON IT. There is nothing like my kitchen aid and CAST IRON SKILLET. Smile I would be doing the same thing if we were moving Ha ha Ha.
