French Bread: Yummy and Easy!

Top Review by Girl in Uruguay

I didn't read the recipe through before making, I should have. I think the first direction is confusing. Maybe the ingredient list should be re-ordered to have step one ingredients at the top instead of the bottom. This would have helped me anyways. In the end (despite my mix-ups) I have four huge beautiful loaves of bread! They rose so easily, I couldn't believe it! The texture is light but with plenty of body. Next time I'll reduce the amount of sugar (because of my confusion I already reduced it by 2 t). Thanks for the amazingly easy fantastic recipe!
