Prep:

3 Hr

Cook:

40 Min

Ingredients

1 pkg
active dry yeast
1 Tbsp
each salt and sugar
5 c
all purpose flour
sprinkle cornmeal as needed

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Dissolve yeast in two cups lukewarm water in large mixing bowl.
2
Add salt and sugar and mix well. With wooden spoon, beat in enough flour, 1 cup at a time, to form a smooth ball that clears side of bowl. Cover, and set in warm place free from drafts, for one and a half hours, or until doubled in bulk.
3
Stir down, then turn out on lightly floured board. Knead a few turns, then cut in half. Shape each half in a loaf, about 12 inches long. Put on baking sheet, well sprinkled with cornmeal.
4
Let rise 5 minutes, then slash tops in 4 places with sharp knife. Brush with water and put in cold oven with pan of boiling water on bottom rack.
5
Turn oven control to 400 degrees F, and bake 40 minutes, or until crusty and lightly browned. Best served hot.
