How to Make Southern Crusty Fat Free Bread

Step-by-Step

  • 1Dissolve yeast in two cups lukewarm water in large mixing bowl.
  • 2Add 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.
  • 3Stir 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.
  • 4Let 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.
  • 5Turn oven control to 400 degrees F, and bake 40 minutes, or until crusty and lightly browned. Best served hot.
