French Loaf

Combine the water and yeast and allow it to

stand while you gather the rest of the

ingredients and add them to the bread

machine pan. Pour the water/yeast mixture in.

Use the French (#2) option and choose the

settings for a 1.25Kg loaf and a dark crust.

When the baking is complete, carefully

remove the pan from the machine and

remove the bread from the pan. Remove the

kneading paddles if they are still in the loaf.

Let the loaf cool completely on a wire rack

before slicing.
