Ann's Easy French Bread

I went to my good friend Ann's class on bread making.  She inspired everyone to bake more bread!  This quick and easy recipe was made and devoured later that week.  

4 cups flour (white or combination of wheat or other grains)
2 cups warm water
2 tsp. salt
3 T sugar
1 package yeast

Add yeast to 1 cup of the warm water and let sit for 5 minutes.

Combine flour, sugar, salt and yeast water.  Add just enough of the 2nd cup of warm water to hold ingredients together.  Blend with a spoon until it is all "stuck" together.  Set aside and let rise for 45 minutes in a warm place.  (Or place in the refrigerator for a slower rise throughout the day)

Punch down and form loaves, braids, rolls, etc.  Let rise an additional 30-60 minutes.  Bake at 375 for 30 minutes for bread loaves, or until golden brown for rolls.
