To make French Bread


  • 1/2 peck of fine flour
  • yolks of 6 eggs and 4 whites
  • salt
  • 1 pint of ale yeast
  • new milk


Take the flour, the yolks and four whites, a little salt, the ale yeast, and as much new milk made warm as will make it a thin light paste, stir it about with your hand, but be sure you don't knead them; have ready six wooden quarts or pint dishes, fill them with the paste, (not over full) let them stand a quarter of an hour to rise, then turn them out into the oven, and when they are baked rasp them. The oven must be quick.
