French Bread

Another very simple and easy bread recipe.  Works great to mix in your Bosch or Kitchenaid.

1 3/4 c. warm water
2 T. yeast
3 T. sugar
3 T. oil
1 1/2 t. salt
4 c. flour

* Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

* Mix water and yeast and let sit until frothy.  Add remaining ingredients and knead for 1 min.  Let raise for 10 mins.  Split in half and form into 2 loaves and place on greased jellyroll pan.  Let raise 10 more mins.  Bake for 20 mins.  Let it sit 5 minutes before serving.

* You can make it look like french bread by using your bread knife and slicing across the top diagonally right after you have formed it into loaves.
