I have finaly gotten around to making bread this week and have decided to make a loaf of french bread. I got the recipe from the back of a Red Star Quick Rise yeast pack - it is recipe #9. But I did use half and half on un-bleached flour and whole wheat so it really didn't rise - I should have used 1/2 of the other pack but the flavor was good and I'm sure it'll make great toast or bread crumbs. Either way nothing goes to waste here.
It was a bit weird for me to use the mixer - rather than by hand.
