0:21 Ingredients for french bread
1️⃣1:18 In the bowl of a standing mixer, add warm water (between 95-105 degrees Fahrenheit), sugar, and yeast. Stir, and let sit for a few minutes, or until frothy.
2️⃣2:00 Add the oil, salt, and about half of the flour. Using the dough hook, mix on low for 1-2 minutes, or until all the flour is mixed in.
3️⃣4:20 Continue to mix on low and add flour until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
4️⃣4:25 Knead dough on low for about 2 minutes. If the dough feels sticky, add a little more flour, until the dough is no longer sticky but is still soft.
5️⃣4:55 Turn the mixer off, cover the bowl with a towel, and let the dough rest for about 15 minutes.
6️⃣5:25 Meanwhile, lightly spray a large baking sheet or French bread loaf pans.
6️⃣6:22 Once your dough has rested, remove it from the bowl onto a lightly floured surface. Separate the dough into 2 equal pieces.
8️⃣ 6:40 How to shape french bread. Gently roll each piece of dough into a rectangle using a rolling pin, about 14″ x 8″. Using your hands, roll each rectangle up, starting from the longer edge and gently pressing out large air bubbles with the heel of your hand until you have 2 long narrow loaves.
9️⃣8:48 Carefully place the dough onto your prepared baking pans with the seam sides down. Cover with a kitchen towel, and let the dough rise in a warm place for 30-40 minutes, or until the dough has doubled.
