    A dear friend gave me this recipe, swearing that it is too easy to mess up- and she was right! It was delicous, better than anything fresh from the bakery!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Dissolve yeast, warm water, and sugar in a small bowl.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl or stand mixer, combine hot water, granulated sugar, salt, and oil. Add 1 1/2 cups of flour to the mixture in the large bowl/mixer and mix well. Stir in yeast mixture.
    3. 3
      Add 1 – 1 1/2 cups more flour and mix until well blended. (At this point your dough will still be quite sticky). Leave in bowl and let rise for 1 hour, mixing a few strokes a couple of times during the hour.
    4. 4
      Divide dough into 2 (or 3 if you want smaller loaves) pieces. Roll out each piece on a floured surface into the length desired then roll up length wise like a jelly roll.
    5. 5
      Put on a greased cookie sheet, sealed side down, and tuck the ends under. Slash the top diagonally across the top every couple of inches with a sharp knife. Brush with egg white. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Let loaves rise 30 more minutes.
    6. 6
      Bake for 25 - 30 minutes.

      I was worried at first because my dough didn't seem to raise. However, the resulting loaves were incredible! They were the lightest loaves I have ever made! Plus, this was the first recipe I ever found that made French bread that tastes like the ones you buy in the store! Absolutely the best French bread recipe ever!
