One Hour French Bread

     This bread recipe uses honey (instead of sugar) and doesn't need any special ingredients like many other one-hour bread recipes call for. In fact, it calls for a total of 5 ingredients (and one of them is water)! And it really does take only one hour!! Really, from start to finish, ONE hour! It is simple and foolproof.


1 1/2 cups warm water
1 tablespoon honey
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1  tablespoon active dry yeast
3-4 cups of flour


1. Combine the water, honey, salt and yeast in a bowl. Let sit for 5-10 mins. until there is foam on the top.

2. Next, add the flour. You want your dough to be sticking to itself, not your fingers, but also not be too dry. So start with just 3 cups and keep adding flour and kneading until that happens.

3. Form the dough into a loaf shape and place on a greased cookie sheet. Cover with a towel and let sit on the counter for 20 mins. Turn the oven on to 400°F.

4. Score the top and bake for 16-20 mins.

 It is quite delicious and goes really well with my broccoli cheese soup.

It is so easy that my {almost 12 year old} son made two loaves!!
Of course they ate one loaf before I could even take a photo, so it really is delicious!

BONUS points: this counted towards his school hours!

I also tried this recipe with a couple added ingredients:
