Breadmaker French Bread
I love making homemade bread. This Breadmaker French Bread is one of the recipes I use a lot. It’s super simple since the bread machine does most of the work for me. If your family enjoys homemade bread, definitely give this recipe a try!

- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3-1/2 cups bread flour
- 1-1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1 tablespoon cornmeal
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon water
- 2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted, optional
- In bread machine pan, place the first five ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1-2 tablespoons water or flour if needed).
- When cycle is complete, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide in half. Roll each portion into a 10x8-inch rectangle. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with the long side; pinch to seal seams.
