Easy Homemade French Bread

This Easy Homemade French Bread recipe can be made at home! I use it for garlic bread, French bread pizzas and have turned leftovers into croutons! Quick easy and versatile!

Yield: 1 loaf

Prep Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

2-1/2 cups All Purpose Flour

1 packet {2-1/4 teaspoons} Rapid Rise Yeast

3/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt

1 cup Warm Water

Olive Oil, for greasing

Directions:

In the bowl of your stand mixer pour warm water {110-115 degrees} and sprinkle in one packet of rapid rise yeast. Let the yeast bloom for 5 minutes. Grease a large bowl with olive oil.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl measure and mix the flour with the kosher salt.

Stir the flour into the yeast-water until just combined. Using a dough hook, mix until the dough is smooth and tacky.

Form the dough in to a ball and toss it in the oiled bowl. Roll the dough to coat with oil. Place a damp towel over top and place the bowl in a warm area to rise, double in size.

Punch down, form into a long log and slide into an cool, un-preheated oven. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees {while the loaf is in the oven} and set the timer for 30 minutes.
