HOW TO MAKE Farmhouse White Bread

In a large bowl, combine buttermilk, honey and yeast. Stir to dissolve and let stand about 30 minutes.

Add egg, oil, salt, and 1 cup of flour to the yeast mixture; stir to combine. Add enough remaining flour to create a firm dough. Place dough on a floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes.

Return the dough to the bowl, dust the top lightly with flour and cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap. Rise at room temperature about 3 hours.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and dust with cornmeal. Shape dough into a smooth round ball. Place onto a baking sheet. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and set aside to proof for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Brush cream lightly over risen dough loaf. Using a serrated knife, slash a crosshatch design into the top of the dough, about an inch deep. Place a pan of cold water at the bottom of the oven to create steam. Bake until the bread is brown, about 30-40 minutes. Remove to a rack to cool completely.
