Peasant Bread

Peasant Bread

1½ c. warm water

1 ½ t. salt

2 T. sugar

2 T. butter or olive oil

4 c. flour

2 t. yeast

Place above ingredients (in order given or according to your machines instructions) into bread pan and mix on “Dough “ cycle. When completed, remove from pan, knead to expel air and form into a 1 or 2 ball(s). Place on a greased (or vegetable sprayed) baking sheet. I like to let my dough rise in a warm oven by turning the oven on for 1 minute then turning it off. It takes approximately 45 minutes to double in size. Remove from oven and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bake 20-30 minutes or till done. When done, remove from oven, place on rack and rub butter on outside and cover with a cloth till cooled. Happy eating.
