I have been making a bread recipe that came along with my Cuisinart and its is as good as the store pought loaves and a lot cheaper than $3 a loaf. Here is the recipe.
2t fine sea salt
1 pack instant yeast
1 1/4 C water
Put dry ingredients into the bowl with the dough blade. Take temperatur of mix. Measure out warm water. The water temp should be 145 minus the flour temp. (Example Flour is 70 degrees the water should be 75 degrees. With the machine running on dough speed pour and water and let run for 45 seconds. Put into an ungreased bowl and let set 2 hours covered with plastic.
Punch down bread and let rest for 15 minutes. Cut inot 2 equal portions and shape. Let stand another hour.
Put a pan on bottom shelf of oven and preheat to 450 degrees.
Cut crosses into the tops of the loaves and place on baking stone. Pour boiling water into pan in oven and reduce heat to 425. Bake 30-40 minutes.
Let stand 30 minutes after baking if you can stand to.
This is a great bread recipe. I'm also attachinf a recipe from Good Eats I saw the other night and am waiting to try.
