French Bread

This is the best recipe, it is really simple and easy but looks like it took a long time! My husband loves it and constantly asks me to make more of it. It is great with soups and stews or for a sandwich. I love to spread Nutella and warm it in the oven.












French Bread

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cup warm water
1 Tbsp honey
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 Tbsp Active Dry Yeast
3 1/2 - 4 1/2 cups all purpose flour (I start with 3 1/2 and add as needed)

Recipe:
1. Combine water, honey, salt and yeast in processor with dough hook. Let sit for 5-10 minutes until there is a foam on top. (Trick for measuring honey: spray the measuring spoon with Pam or olive oil spray and the honey will quickly slide off!)
2. Knead in flour, 1 cup at a time, until no longer sticky.
3. Place on a baking pan, and cover with a towel and let rest for 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 425.
4. Cut slits in the top and bake for 15 - 20 minutes, until crispy on the outside.
