french bread

Prep Time:
Cook Time:
3 small loaves or 2 large


Part 1:
2 1/2 c. warm water
2 Tbls. yeast
3 Tbls. sugar
2 Tbls. white vinegar

Part 2:
1 Tbls. salt
1/3 c. oil (I use Canola)
6-7 c. flour


  1. Add the Part 1 ingredients together and let sit until bubbly (about 3-5 minutes).
  2. Then add the Part 2 ingredients. For the flour, add one cup at a time--add enough until the dough is soft, but firm enough to mold into dough loaves.
  3. Knead for 2-5 minutes and then put in the oven with a small pot of boiling water. The water will keep the dough moist. Watch the dough and punch it down when it gets to the top of the mixing bowl. Do this every time it gets to the top of the bowl, as long as you have time to babysit it (2-5 times).
  4. Put the dough on a greased countertop and divide into 3 sections.
  5. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray and sprinkle a thin layer of cornmeal on the bottom of the sheet. Roll the dough balls into rectangle/long French bread shapes. Slash tops of bread diagonally 3-5 times and cover with a beaten egg.
  6. Let rise 30 minutes (or until doubled)on the counter, or you can put them in your oven at 170 and wait until they are the size you want to cook them at.
  7. Once they are to the right size, turn up your stove to 375 (without opening the door!) and let them bake until done. Or, just raise on the counter and bake at 375 for 30 minutes.
