This is a larger version of the other French Bread recipe I've posted - makes a 1 1/2lb loaf. It's a wonderfully open, light and delicious bread, and is actually slightly nicer than the smaller one I often make. It's egg-free, very low fat, sugar-free, and if using oil is dairy free, Kosher Pareve and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. I'm using this one more now that I have a new machine which makes larger and more conventional rectangular shaped loaves. It is based very heavily on a standard Panasonic machine recipe. I incorrectly listed this as suitable for diabetics, and most will be aware that white flour is more readily converted from complex to simple carbohydrates which will of course raise blood sugar levels.
