  • On a lightly floured surface, shape dough into a ball. Place on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet sprinkled with the cornmeal; flatten slightly to an 8-inch round loaf. Lightly rub top with the 1-1/2 teaspoons bread flour. With a very sharp knife, make several cuts about 1/4 inch deep on top of loaf. Cover; let rise in a warm place for 30 to 45 minutes or until nearly double. Bake in a 400 degree F. oven about 25 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when lightly tapped. Remove from baking sheet; cool on a wire rack. Makes 16 servings.

Tips

The bread machine pan must have a capacity of 10 cups or more.
