Italian Bread using a bread machine

Submitted by: DDT1970

Introduction

This recipe comes from "More Bread Machine Magic". This cookbook has become my go-to for any bread products!
This is a hard crust with a chewy interior. I have used this recipe using the dough setting and then made rolls and buns out of it. I haven't bought bread since I started making this!

Now don't forget to check your dough after 8 minutes, scrape down, and add water if needed.

Number of Servings: 14

Ingredients

    1 1/2 c. water

    1 1/2 tbsp olive oil

    1 tsp salt

    3 c. bread flour ( I have used regular flour and half white half wheat before)

    1 /12 tsp yeast

Directions

1. Place all ingredients in the bread pan. Select Medium or Dark Crust setting, the French Bread cycle, and press Start.

2. Observe the dough as it kneads. After 8 minutes, if it appears dry and stiff or if your machine sounds as if it's straining to knead it, add more liquid 2 tbps at a time until dough forms a smooth, soft, plaible ball that is slightly tacky to the touch.

3. After the baking cycle ends, remove bread pan using a hot pad. Invert on a cake rack to remove bread and allow to cool 1 hour before slicing.

*I use a ziploc bag to store the bread using a paper towel but it will moisten if put in the bag before cooling.
