I cut this in half for my video, the full recipe makes two loaves.
Easy French Bread (aka-kids can do it all except the oven)
5 cups of all-purpose or bread flour
2 teaspoons sea salt
1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
2 and 1/4 cups water
Mix dry ingredients, then add water. Cover the bowl with a towel and let it rise for 12 to 24 hours.
About an hour before you're ready to bake, put the dough out on a floured surface (more flour than I did, as you can see mine stuck to the board) and form the log shape about 12 inches long. Let it rise for about an hour, at the halfway point turn the oven to 450 degrees and place your pizza stone inside to get nice and hot. (I haven't tried it without a pizza stone, but I would imagine you could do it on a cookie sheet). Brush water on the top and transfer to the pizza stone, let back at 450 for 30 minutes. Take out and enjoy your fresh bread !!!
