This bread recipe is easy peasy and absolutely delish.
Breaking bread may bring people together, but baking bread seems to intimidate many home chefs.
At least, that’s the response I get from others when I make this bread. Everyone always appears stunned that I whipped up a loaf of French bread so easily and that it’s so good. But it actually is really easy, just five ingredients and five easy steps, and voila! You’ve got a delicious loaf of bread that will impress and satisfy dinner party guests or that friend coming by for a glass of wine.
