Breadmachine French bread

I use the bread machine set to French bread setting.

In the pail put…

2 1/8 c. water
6 c. flour
6 tsp wheat gluten
2 tsp salt
2 tsp yeast

After it rises to the top of the pail I shape as you see here using two french bread pans that fills my oven rack.

You could use a cookie sheet and you can make the long baguettes instead, but I make each loaf into toe short ones. I let them rise to my liking then bake twenty minutes at 450. Then let them cool on a rack, then I freeze four loaves to a bag. Then when I want to make one with supper I turn on the oven to 400 degrees, set the loaves right on your oven rack. When it gets to temp time for eight minutes then you have a hot crusty loaf of bread yum!


  1. Do you reheat it frozen? Do you put it in the oven while it preheats? This sounds like a great idea!

  2. yes the loaves are cooked then frozen i take out one from freezer place on oven rack turn on oven to 400 degrees when i get to temp i time eight min it is very crusty you could try six min but it is crusty and hot just perfect with salad or soups so easy and hugely yummy

    1. Thanks, I will be trying this!

  3. i will be making sure i have them in my freezer i have eight in there now
