Makes: 4 loaves Total Time: 2 hr 15 min
Category: Breads Sub Category: Yeast Breads

what you need
  • 2 packages (.25-ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2-1/2 cups warm water (105°F to 115°F)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 5-1/2 to 6-1/2 cups bread flour, divided
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
make it
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in 2-1/2 cups warm water; let stand for 5 minutes. Add olive oil and salt. With an electric mixer, gradually beat in 5-1/2 cups flour, beating until smooth. Beat in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead dough for 5 minutes, or until dough is smooth and elastic. Place dough in a lightly greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°F), free from drafts, for 45 minutes, or until doubled in size. Lightly grease 4 baguette pans or 2 baking sheets; sprinkle with cornmeal and set aside.

Divide dough into 4 equal portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 10-x15-inch rectangle. Roll up dough, starting at long side, jelly-roll fashion. Place each loaf, seam-side down, onto prepared pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°F), free from drafts, for 45 minutes, or until doubled in size.

Preheat oven to 400°F. Gently, brush each loaf with egg white. Cut 6 (1/4-inch deep) slits across top of dough with a sharp paring knife. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool in pans for 10 minutes. Remove from pans and cool for 20 minutes on wire racks before slicing.
