Homemade French Bread

Hello everyone,

My family and I Love Fresh Baked French Bread. I have never had the guts to try and bake it myself until today.  To my surprise it was pretty simple to make. So I will definitely bake it more often. 


So let’s get started and you can see just how easy this bread is to bake.

Ingredients :

6 C. of Flour (I did 3 Cups of All Purpose and 3 Cups of wheat)
2 1/2 C. of Warm Water
2 TBS of Yeast
1 TBS of Sugar
1 tsp of Sea Salt
3 TBS of Olive Oil + more for later

Instructions :

Add yeast and sugar to the 2 1/2 cups of water. Let it sit for about five minutes until you see the yeast get all bubbly on top.

In a food processor or bowl add Flour, Salt. Mix to combine. Add water mixture and oil mix until pulls away from the sides of food processor or bowl.

Knead the dough 6-8 times. Place in an oiled bowl to rise for 15-30 minutes.


Once your dough has risen. Cut dough into 2 pieces. Roll into French Bread shape. (Makes 2 loaves) Place on a parchment lined and oiled baking sheet.



Score the dough and lightly brush with Olive Oil. Place in a 375° pre-heated oven for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.


Now enjoy a bread with a nice crusty and crackling outside and soft inside.


Add some marinara sauce, cheese and dried oregano for a French Bread Pizza. Melt with your favorite cheeses for an appetizer or simply add butter.


Happy Baking & Enjoy!!!

Until Next Time,

Sewloveable ☺
