 Ingredients List

  • 1 pk Dry yeast
  • 1 ts Sugar
  • 1 1/2 c Warm water, divided, 105 to
  • -115 degrees
  • 3 1/4 c Bread flour
  • 1 c Whole-wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 ts Salt
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 1 tb Cornmeal


Dissolve yeast and sugar in 1/2 cup warm water in a small bowl; let stand 5

Place bread flour, whole-wheat flour, and salt in food processor, and pulse
4 times or until blended. With processor on, slowly add yeast mixture and
remaining 1 cup warm water through food chute; process until dough leaves
sides of bowl and forms a ball. Process 15 additional seconds.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead 3 or 4 times.
Place the dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat
top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85 degrees), free from drafts, 45
minutes or until doubled in bulk.

Punch the dough down, and turn out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3
or 4 times. Cover and let rest 5 minutes. Divide the dough in half, and
roll each portion into a 17 x 9-inch rectangle. Roll up each rectangle,
starting with a long edge, pressing firmly to eliminate air pockets; pinch
ends to seal. Place each roll, seam side down, in an 18-inch-long baguette
pan coated with cooking spray and sprinkled with cornmeal. Cover and let
rise 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk.

Uncover the dough; using a sharp knife, make 6 diagonal cuts 1/4 inch deep
across top of loaves. Spray loaves with water. Bake at 400 degrees for 25
minutes or until loaves sound hollow when tapped. Remove from pans; cool on
wire racks. Yield: 2 loaves, 12 servings per loaf.

rectangles; roll up into loaves. Let rise until doubled. Bake at 375
degrees for 35 minutes.
