Home Made Round White Bread

Step by Step Instructions for creating
a fine tasting crusty round white bread.
I timed heating up water in the microwave
to the best temperature for disolving yeast.
It should be about 100 degrees F.

1 cup fresh cold water
1 packet yeast
1 tablespoon sugar
3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons cornmeal
a bowl of water for oven

Place cold water in a glass measuring cup
and microwave on high setting for 40 seconds.
The temperature of the water should be about
100 degrees F. to desolve the yeast into.
Stir the sugar into the water to desolve,
then pour the yeast in the cup of water,
stir to disolve and let sit for 5 minutes.
Mean while combine flour and salt in a mixing
bowl and when yeast is all nice and bubbly
add the water to the flour and mix until
all the water is absorbed into the flour.
Turn dough out onto a floured work surface
and knead for minutes creating a ball of dough.
Place mixing bowl over ball of dough to allow
the dough to rise and double in size,
this should take about 1 hour.
Place an ovenproof dish of water on the
bottom rack of the oven to provide moisture.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Dust a dry baking sheet with corn meal.
Place bread dough on baking sheet and bake
for about 45 minutes or until done.
