    Baking Bunny's Note:

    My husband's grandmother was famous for this bread. They lived in France for awhile so this should be the real deal. Also, very nice for those of us without bread machines!

      Good basic french bread recipe. I was a little nervous about not doing an initial rise for the dough, but found that it worked very well. I made four small loaves, we ate one fresh and the other three were placed in the freezer for later use. The only complaint I had was my bread didn't get crusty, but stayed soft. My husband prefers it that way, but I like crispy bread.
