Well, when this happens to me, I bust out this nifty little recipe for french bread.Four Ingredient Easy French Bread

Wait.

Bread???

Like with yeast and kneading and rising?

I feel ya. In the past, I’ve always past over any recipe containing yeast because I was convinced I didn’t have the skills to carry it out.

This recipe is different.

Easy Peesy French Bread

 

The easiest quickest way to have yummy fresh bread. If I can do this, YOU CAN DO THIS!

Author: Julie

Recipe type: Bread

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups warm water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoons Active Dry Yeast
  • 3½ – 4½ cups flour

Instructions

  1. Combine the water, honey, salt and yeast in a glass bowl. Let sit for 5-10 mins. until there’s some bubbling, foam stuff on the top.
  2. Next, add a bunch of flour. I used just regular white organic flour. Keep kneading until it is no longer sticky. You want your dough to be sticking to itself, not your fingers. So, keep adding flour and keep kneading until that happens.
  3. Form the dough into a loaf shape. Cover with a towel and let sit on the counter for 20 mins (or on top of the preheating oven if your kitchen is cold). This is the time to set the oven to 400 degrees.
  4. After 20 mins., cut slits in the top of the dough and bake for 16-20 mins.
  5. Variations can be made by adding garlic and oregano, or cinnamon and raisins, or whatever you dream up!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups warm water (like baby bath water)

1 tablespoon honey (We like to use Organic Raw Honey like this.)

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1  tablespoon Active Dry Yeast ( or 2 of these little packets)

3 1/2 – 4 1/2 cups flour 

UPDATE: I’ve started adding garlic powder to the dough and sprinkling the top with oregano and some small pieces of butter to melt all over during the baking. Oh. My. Word.
