French Bread


This is my favorite French Bread recipe. My sister-in-law Teresa gave me the recipe and I fell in love instantly! I did change a few little things from the original recipe to my liking. It is also great as pizza crust.

French Bread

Starter
Combine-
1 cup flour
1 cup warm water
½ T. yeast
1 T. sugar

mix and let sit for a minimum of 3 hours
(I let mine sit over night for even more flavor)

Add-
4 cups flour
1 cup warm water
½ T. yeast
2 egg whites
2 t. salt

mix for 7 minutes - until it cleans the bowl but is still moist like playdough. Let rise for 1 hour. Shape into two loaves and let rise for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Cook at 400 for 20 minutes. Rub with butter.
