Homemade French Bread

1 cup warm water (between 115-120 degrees F)
2 1/2 cups bread flour
1 Tbsp white sugar
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp bread machine yeast
1 egg yolk
splash of water

  • Place the water, flour, sugar, salt and yeast into a bread machine pan in the order recommended by your manufacturer. Make sure the salt, water and yeast are not touching. Select the dough cycle, and press start.
  • When the cycle has completed, take out the dough and place it in a greased glass bowl, turning it to coat all sides.
  • Cover with a clean cloth. Let rise in a warm place (I like my oven with the light on) for 30 minutes, or until it has doubled. Dough is ready if indention remains when touched.
