French Bread – 2 Pound Loaf
This quick to make, simple loaf is yummy, sure to please, and claims to be healthy. The recipe has been floating about the internet for so long it is not possible to know where it originated . . . likely somebody’s grandma!
I made it in my bread machine opting for a light crust (color) and choosing the rapid setting. If your machine doesn’t have a rapid setting, I am told the regular setting works fine. Realize this will take much longer. On my machine the regular (basic) setting is 3 hours compared to 1 hour on rapid. I even sliced it while it was hot, being impatient to taste it!
Being watchful of the order in which your bread machine requires ingredients, here are all you need:
1 1/2 C warm water
4 C bread flour
1 -1/2 TSP Salt
2 -1/2 TSP Yeast
So simple and quick you’ll want to make extra to share!

Try breaking CAKE together on your knees!
Okay, do you swoon over the aroma of freshly . . . cake? Not me! Getting a little light headed right now because there is a loaf in my oven!
Ever sit around the camp fire singing “I am the cake of life? Leavened or not, I am a happy girl!
Oops! Time to kneed my dough!

It is not through the efforts
Of my bread pan
That today’s loaves are ready
And others will be fed.

We so often hear pleas this time of year to spend money but giving from the heart goes in a potentially opposite direction. A hug, a smile, a cup of tea, a listening ear . . . a loaf of homemade bread, a plate of homemade cookies, cakes, or muffins . . . you will be amazed how doing so changes your day! Be a blessing to someone today!
