Straightforward white bread recipe for Breadmaker (if you’re clever, you can adapt it for
the oven!) Whole wheat flour could be substituted. Initially, this was a medieval Tuscan
recipe created by peasants who couldn’t afford the high taxes on salt. Perfect for those
of us on low-sodium diets!
1 cup warm water
1 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoons yeast
3 cups flour
Mix water and sugar, and dissolve sugar.
Add yeast to sugar water.
Put flour, yeast mixture, and olive oil into Breadmaker.
Start the Breadmaker with a plain or French loaf setting on your machine.
Add egg white when ingredients are almost completely combined (about 5 minutes in).
Allow Breadmaker to complete baking.
