This is a wonderful and easy recipe that tastes a lot like "English Muffins", and is great plain or toasted. Everyone who has tried it, loves it!

4 cups bread flour
1 tsp. salt
1 pkg. Active Dry Yeast
1/2 tsp. granulated sugar
1 (12 oz.) can Diet Coke, at room temperature

Vegetable oil, for greasing bowl

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. With an electric mixer using dough hook, beat ingredients until well mixed, and dough has formed into a ball.

Place dough into a bowl that has been well oiled (placing about 1 tablespoon of oil on a paper towel, and rubbing bowl with oiled paper towel). Turn ball of dough to coat top with oil. Cover bowl with plastic wrap for approximately 1 to 1-1/2 hours, or until dough has doubled in size.

Place dough onto floured board and knead well. Shape dough into two loaves and place in oiled bread pans dusted with corn meal. Turn to oil top of loaves. Allow to rise until doubled in size (about 1 hour).

Bake at 350 degrees F (180 C) for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown and bread has loosened from sides of pan.

Makes 2 loaves.

Use your bread machine to just make the dough. Then bake it in the oven. You let it rise a litlte longer so it gets a bit bigger than double in size. Put a pan of water in the bottom of the oven while it rises. When the dough has risen slash it several times across the top. Spray it with cold water. Pop it in the oven at 375 degrees F. and bake for 25 minutes. Spray it with more water every 10 minutes. French bread needs more moisture. Here is a good recipe for French Bread.French BreadLarge Loaf1 1/2 C. water1 1/2 tsp. Salt2 Tbsp. Sugar4 C. Flour1 1/4 tsp. YeastIf wanting to bake in Oven. Shape dough into a long Frenchbread shape and place on cookie sheet and let riee till doublein size.About 45 min. I place the pan on the stove top with theoven on and cover with tea towel. It rises well thgere. When ithas risen put a few slash marks on it with knife across thewidth not the length. Pop in 375 F. oven on middle rack andbake 20 to 25 Min. till golden brown and sounds hollow whentapped. -Hope you enjoy.
