The easiest and best French bread you will ever make. Simple ingredients, mixed in a stand mixer or by hand. Makes two huge loaves! #Yeast #Bread #Recipes #texture

Total Time: 110 Minutes, Servings: 12 Servings

Ingredients :
  • 2 tablespoons dry yeast I prefer SAF brand
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon (yes tablespoon!) sea or Kosher salt
  • 5 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
  • 6 cups All Purpose flour divided ( I often use 2 cups of bread flour)*
  • 1 egg *optional beaten- for glazing bread

Instructions :
  • Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water.
  • In a separate large bowl combine hot water, sugar, salt, oil and 3 cups of the flour. Stir well.
  • Add the yeast mixture to the hot water-flour mixture. Mix together with large wooden spoon or paddle attachment.
  • Add the remaining 3 cups of flour a cup at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  • After all of the flour is added and mixed in, let sit in bowl for 10 minutes.
  • When the dough has risen, stir down with a large spoon. If making in a stand mixer, turn the machine on low for a few seconds until the dough is deflated, and push dough to bottom part of bowl with a spatula.
  • Repeat 5 times, every ten minutes, for a total of 60 minutes of rising and then punching (or pushing) down.
  • Divide the dough in half. Roll each half of dough in a 9x12 rectangle on a floured surface.
  • Roll the dough up like a jelly roll (long way). Place the dough on a greased baking pan (jelly roll pan), with the seam side down. Both loaves fit on one pan.
  • Score the bread across the top 3 or 4 times, and brush with beaten egg (if using).
  • Let rise for 20-30 minutes in warm place.
  • Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes in lower half of oven, until golden brown. Or you may bake at 350-375 convection for 18-20 minutes until golden.
