Easy Peesy French Bread

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups warm water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoons Active Dry Yeast
  • 3½ – 4½ cups flour

Directions

  1. Combine the water, honey, salt and yeast in a glass bowl. Let sit for 5-10 mins. until there’s some bubbling, foam stuff on the top.
  2. Next, add a bunch of flour. I used just regular white organic flour. Keep kneading until it is no longer sticky. You want your dough to be sticking to itself, not your fingers. So, keep adding flour and keep kneading until that happens.
  3. Form the dough into a loaf shape. Cover with a towel and let sit on the counter for 20 mins (or on top of the preheating oven if your kitchen is cold). This is the time to set the oven to 400 degrees.
  4. After 20 mins., cut slits in the top of the dough and bake for 16-20 mins.
  5. Variations can be made by adding garlic and oregano, or cinnamon and raisins, or whatever you dream up!
