After 20 minutes of dough preparation, remove dugh from machine and place in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with a damp towel and let rise until doubled, about 2 hours. Deflate dough and let rise again until doubled, about 1 hour.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and form into a round loaf (I made oblong). Place loaf on a baking sheet that has been sprinkled with cornmeal. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 40 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400F (200C).
Spray loaf with water and place in preheated oven. Spray loaf again every two minutes during first 10 minutes of baking. Bake for 40 minutes, until bottom of load sounds hollow when tapped.
