Artisan Bread

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a large bowl stir together the 3/4 cup water and the yeast. Let stand for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan heat and stir milk, sugar, butter, and salt just until warm (120 degrees F to 130 degrees F) and butter, if using, almost melts. Stir milk mixture into yeast mixture until combined. Stir in flour (dough will be sticky). Lightly coat a medium bowl with cooking spray or brush with olive oil; transfer dough to the greased bowl. Lightly coat a sheet of plastic wrap with cooking spray or brush with olive oil; cover bowl with the greased plastic wrap, coated side down. Chill for at least 4 hours or for up to 24 hours.
  2. Using a dough scraper or spatula, carefully loosen dough from bowl and turn out onto a floured surface. Cover with greased plastic wrap. Let stand for 30 minutes.
  3. Grease a baking sheet; sprinkle lightly with cornmeal. Gently shape dough into a 6-inch round loaf, lightly flouring the dough as needed. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet, using dough scraper or spatula if necessary. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and place on the middle rack of your unheated oven; place a bowl of warm water on the lower rack. Let rise until nearly double in size (about 1 hour).
  4. Remove bread from oven; uncover and set aside. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a small bowl whisk together egg and the 2 teaspoons water; brush over loaf. Bake about 25 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of the loaf registers at least 200 degrees F. If necessary to prevent overbrowning, cover with foil for the last 5 minutes of baking. Remove from baking sheet or pan; cool on a wire rack.
