Quick French Bread

2 1/2Cups Warm Water
2T. Yeast
2T. Sugar
1t. Salt
3T. Oil
5 1/2 to 6Cups Flour

1.First: Add yeast and then sprinkle the sugar over the 2 1/2 cups of water. Let it sit for about five minutes until you see the yeast get all bubbly on top.
2.Next: Stir in the salt, oil, and flour.
3.Then: Knead the dough for a few minutes until it is smooth and pulls away from the bowl.
4.Then cover your bowl with a warm wet towel and let the dough sit for about 15 minutes.
5.**Update: Tip - turn your microwave on for two minutes and set your bowl of bread dough in the warm microwave for the 15 minutes. This warm envirmonment makes the bread rise a lot faster.
6.Next, divide the dough into two long loaves (rolling like a jelly roll and tucking in the ends). Place both loaves side by side on a greased cookie sheet. Then take a knife and slash the tops of each loaf diagonally. Allow the loaves to sit for a few minutes while you preheat your oven to 375. Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown.

*Can make with half wheat flour with no craziness!
