Good & Simple French Bread

I love to use my bread maker when cooking something in the crockpot. I put the the bread on before church and come home to my meal pretty much ready. This is a great recipe and makes great croutons with the leftovers.

Good & Simple French Bread

Makes one 1 1/2 lb. loaf
1 c. + 2 T. lukewarm water
1 t. lemon juice, fresh or bottled
1 1/2 T. olive oil
1 1/2 T. sugar
1 t. salt
3 1/2 c. flour
2 t. yeast

Bake on French Bread cycle. Can be baked on Instant Cycle by increasing yeast to 2 1/2 t. For an even tastier loaf, add a teaspoon of basil, oregano, marjoram, leaf sage, or tarragon.

My notes say I made this first in June 2004. We added basil and chives to this. Very tasty bread.
