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

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