Farmer’s Bread Recipe

Directions

Share

Ingredients :

  • 2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 6 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup butter, chilled and diced
  • Methods :

  • Step 1

    In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

  • Step 2

    In a large bowl, combine 4 cups of flour and salt. Cut in the butter and stir in the yeast mixture. Beat in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Butter a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl, and turn to coat. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

  • Step 3

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a large baking sheet.

  • Step 4

    Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Form the dough into a large oval loaf. Place onto the prepared pan. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes. When the loaf is risen, cut a 1/2 inch deep cross onto the top of it. Brush the top with water before baking.

  • Step 5

    Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until bottom of loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Let cool on a wire rack before slicing.
