Ingredients

  • 2 1/2

    teaspoons dry yeast ( 1 package)

  • 1

    cup warm water (105º to 115º)

  • 3

    cups bread flour

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • Cooking spray

  • 1

    tablespoon water

  • 1

    large egg white

Directions

Dissolve the yeast in warm water in a small bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Place the flour and salt in a food processor, and pulse 2 times or until blended. With the food processor on, slowly add yeast mixture through food chute, and process until the dough forms a ball. Process for 1 additional minute. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead lightly 4 to 5 times. Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover dough, and let rise in a warm place (85º), free from drafts, 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk. 4. Punch dough down, and shape into a 6-inch round loaf. Place loaf on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Cover dough and let rise 30 minutes or until doubled in bulk. Preheat oven to 450º. Uncover dough, and make 3 diagonal cuts 1/4-inch deep across top of loaf using a sharp knife. Combine 1 tablespoon water and egg white, and brush mixture over top of loaf. Bake at 450º for 20 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Serving Size: 1 [1 1/2-ounce] slice
