    One Hour French Bread


    Recipe Description
    Easy loaf of french bread
    Preparation Steps:
    Please see below
    Level of Difficulty:
    Easy
    Time Needed:
    1 hour
    Ingredients:
    Water
    honey
    salt
    yeast
    flour
    Serves:
    one loaf
    Directions:
    I found this on a blog and it is super good. You get a huge loaf.

    One-Hour French Bread
    1½ cups warm water
    1 tablespoon honey
    1½ teaspoons salt
    1½ tablespoons Active Dry Yeast
    3 - 4 cups flour (any combination of white and whole wheat)

    Combine water, salt, honey, and yeast in a medium bowl. Let sit 5 - 10 minutes, until bubbling. Add flour, stirring with a wooden spoon, until dough is no longer sticky (I'll sometimes dump the dough out onto the cutting board with what flour is in the bowl and roll it around,adding a bit more flour, until it's not sticky). Roll dough into a 12 - 14" roll (or you can divide it in half and roll it into two long skinny baguettes). Place dough roll(s) on a cookie sheet (this won't work in a bread pan), greased or sprayed with non-stick spray, cover, and let sit 20 minutes. Preheat oven 375º Make diagonal slits, 1/2" deep, on top with a razor blade. (Optional: spray with salt water). Bake 20 minutes.

    This looks like a good recipe to try for a beginning bread baker! I think I'll try this tonight! I've been afraid to try to bake bread! LOL

    Thank you I was just thinking this morning about finding a quicker recipe. I wonder if it would work in smaller deli roll size. I was thinking of meatball subs this week-end.

    I made this with 100% whole wheat and both Dh and I loved it. I used some for garlic bread and it was delicious.

    Will 1 packet of yeast be the same as your measurement.

    Mine came out okay. I don't know if it as light/airy as I expected. Is this a more dense type french bread? Maybe my kitchen was too cool for a proper rise. It taste good, lol.
