Fantastic French Bread  

 I tried finding a french bread recipe on pinterest before asking my mom for this recipe. (When I talked to her yesterday I found out I had it all along. She had submitted it to a ward cookbook I received for Christmas!) The one I found online was disgusting, dense and bland :( Here's a MUCH better recipe, just ask Danny.     

1 1/8 C warm water
1 tsp sugar
1 T yeast
combine and let stand for 10 minutes.
1 tsp salt
1 tsp honey (sugar works too)
3 C Flour
1 T. oil

Mix and turn onto a floured surface.  Knead dough for about 10 min or until smooth and elastic.  Shape into a ball and placed in a greased bowl, turn bowl over to grease top.  Cover and let rise till doubled in size.  Punch down and shape into a loaf, place on greased baking sheet.  Let rise another 30 min.  Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Cut slices along the top of the loaf with a sharp knife. Lightly brush with water.  Bake for 30-35 min or until golden brown.
We ate ours warm with marinara sauce :)
