Making bread!

So I needed something really simple to make for my blog because I was tired from a trip that I just got back from.So I decided to make bread.To my suprise bread is a lot more complex than I thought.

To make it you will need: 2 and 1/2 to 3 cups of all purpose flour,1 tablespoon active dry yeast,1 tablespoon sugar,and,cornmeal.

Pour 1 cup of the flour in a mixer along with the yeast.

In a saucepan,heat 1 and 1/4 cup water,the sugar,and 3/4 teaspoon salt till warm.(115°-120°)stirring to dissolve the sugar.

Add to the dry mixture in a mixer

Beat at low speed for 1/2 a minute

Beat for 3 minutes on high in the mixer

add in the remaining flour in sections to make a soft dough

shape into a ball

Place into a greased bowl

cover the bowl with plastic wrap

Let rose until it is about double the size about an hour

in the center of the dough punch down once and cover it again with the plastic wrap

Let rest for 10 minutes

Grease a 1 quart casserole tin and sprinkle it with cornmeal

place the dough in the casserole tin even it out

Sprinkle cornmeal on top

Cover with plastic wrap until it rises( about 30-45 minutes)

bake at 400°F for 40 to 45 minutes
