    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine according to your manufacturer's directions.
    2. 2
      Success Hints: To develop the crisp crust that French Bread is known for, use your French cycle.
    3. 3
      If your machine doesn't have a French cycle, simply start your machine and let it go through the first knead, then stop and restart it from the beginning again.
    4. 4
      This gives the bread extra kneading time and results in a crisp crust.
    5. 5
      Because of the distinctive chewy French crust, it is recommended that this bread is served within 24 hours to avoid toughness.
    6. 6
      This recipe can be made using the regular, rapid and delayed time bake cycles.

      Very nice. Has a good crust with a soft fluffy center.It also smells wonderful. It does have a yeasty flavor, and good texture. I changed nothing about this recipe. I set the machine for a 1 1/2 lb loaf. Cheers!

      Great Loaf, but NEEDS SALT! I'm trying it a second time with half a tsp salt to see if that works. I also crisped it up in the oven after baking for a short time to make the crust a little browner.

      I hated to rate this two stars, but I tried this recipe twice and both times the bread didn't have any flavor for us, it kind of just tasted like water. I am sure that this is something that I am doing wrong, but like I said I tried the recipe twice with the same results both times. However, both times I did have a great texture and it smelled really good. If anyone has any ideas of what I might be doing wrong please let me know, because I think that if I could get this to taste right we would really enjoy it. Thanks!
