4 cups unbleached white flour
2 cups warm water
1 TBS Vital Wheat Gluten (optional)
2 tsp salt (1 TBS Sea Salt if preferred)
1/2 pkg active dry yeast (1 tsp bulk dry yeast)
Sometimes I like to take the loaf out of the pan when the top crust is a light brown and continue to bake directly on the oven rack for a nice crust on the entire loaf.
Sometimes I will also shape the bread into a loaf or round and place on a cast iron griddle or cast iron pan that is lightly greased and sprinkled with semolina flour. With this option, I will not allow it to rise a second time if it is on a cast iron griddle, as the dough will rise outward and not upward.
Serving Size: Makes 1 large loaf with 8 servings
Number of Servings: 8
