Step-by-Step Process of Baking White Rustic Bread

Step #1

Take a bowl and add 1 cup of warm water to the bowl. Mix the yeast into the water and wait 5 minutes to set it.

Step #2

Add salt 2 and 3/4 cups of flour to the yeast mixture. Mix the ingredients well until it becomes a dough. When the dough is done, let’s move to the next step.

Step #3

Spread the dough out on a surface dusted with flour. Add just a tablespoon at a time of the remaining flour so that the dough doesn’t stick to your hands. Knead the dough for about 8 minutes or until it is smooth.

Step #4

Place the dough in a big bowl. Before placing the dough, don’t forget to add cooking spray. In a warm (85°) draft-free environment, cover and allow to rise for 45 minutes or until it has doubled in size.

Step #5

Knead the dough out. Wait for 5-6 minutes. Shape the dough into a 6-inch round. Sprinkle cornmeal on a baking sheet and place the dough on a baking sheet. On the dough’s surface, lightly apply the cooking spray. Cover it and let it rise for 45 minutes or until it doubles.

Step #6

You must create the oven before baking. Preheat The oven to 450°.

Step #7

Remove the covering. Use 1 teaspoon of whisked egg white and 1 teaspoon of water to brush the dough. Take a sharp knife and make three ¼-inch deep cuts (4 inches) across the top of the dough.

Step #8

Bake the bread for 20 minutes at 450 degrees, or until the bottom is browned.

Step #9

Your bread is ready! Take it out of the oven and let it cook down for a while. After cooking it down, your bread is ready to eat!
