This wonderful bread you use your bread machine for the hard work, then finish it off in the oven. Totally worth the time and effort for a great fresh sub bread, especially when it is still slightly warm.

How to Make Bread Machine French Baguettes/ "Sub" Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Place 1 cup water, bread flour, sugar, salt and yeast into bread machine pan in the order recommended by manufacturer. Select Dough cycle, and press Start.
  2. When the cycle has completed, place dough in a greased bowl, turning to coat all sides. Cover with a towel, and let rise in a warm place for about 30-40 minutes, or until doubled in bulk. Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched.
  3. Punch down dough. On a lightly floured surface, roll into a 16x12 inch rectangle. Cut dough in half, creating two 8x12 inch rectangles. Roll up each half of dough tightly, like a jelly roll, beginning at 12 inch side, gently pounding out any air bubbles as you go. Roll gently back and forth to taper end. Place 3 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. (I fit both on one sheet) Make deep diagonal slashes across loaves every 2 inches, or make one lengthwise slash on each loaf. Cover, and let rise again in a warm place for an additional 30 to 40 minutes, or until doubled in bulk.
  4. Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix egg yolk with 1 tablespoon water; brush over tops of loaves.
  5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.
