Classic French Bread - 1.5 Lb Loaf

READY IN: 4hrs 20mins
Recipe by Kerena

This recipe came with an old Oster Bread Machine. Even though the bread machine is long gone, I still use this recipe in whatever bread machine I have at the time. Cook times vary depending upon your machine and crust color desired.

Just put all the ingredients in the bread machine and set it to be done by 9:00am tomorrow morning (it's 10pm now). Nothing like freshly baked & warm bread in the morning topped off with Kerry Gold Irish butter! Thanks for posting the recipe!
