I love bread! This is an easy and delicious (and it looks much fancier than it is) bread-machine recipe!
Add the following ingredients to your bread machine and prepare using the dough cycle:
- 1 cup water
- ¼ cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 2 cups bread flour
- 1½ teaspoon bread-machine yeast
Once the dough is finished, remove it from your machine and shape it into a round loaf. Pat sesame seeds all over the top and let it rise again until it’s doubled in size (1- 2 hours). I used the same baking technique as the No-Knead Bread – I preheated my cast iron dutch oven at 400F, added the dough (carefully), baked it for 15 minutes with the cover on and finished it off, 15 – 30 minutes, with the cover off.
It was extra-delicious toasted and slathered with butter and Flickr-friend Lee’s amazing preserves!
