Easy French Bread using the breadmaker to mix and the oven to bake. The bread machine is a great invention, but I find the bread tastes better when it bakes in the oven. Prepare at least 3 hours before serving. To make a regular sized loaf, change the number of servings to 1/2 a loaf.
- Place ingredients in bread machine as shown. Set for dough.
- Form into loaf on floured board - do NOT punch down.
- Placed on greased cookie sheet and allow to rise 1 hour.
- Bake 30-35 minutes in PREHEATED oven at 350 degrees F.
