Easy Stand Mixer French Bread

On the bread scale - this is super easy to make. While it takes quite a while it doesn't take a lot of effort...especially if you have a stand mixer!

The stand mixer makes creating this awesome bread super easy. You use the dough hook to knead the bread so you don't have to!

NOTE - this bread is amazing hot out of the oven. Serve with garlic butter, marinara or pesto!

Next day it is better toasted. Makes great rotisserie chicken salad sandwiches!

Use within 3 days. Refrigerate after one day.

Equipment

  • 13x9" sheet pan

Ingredients
  

  • 6 cups all purpose flour or bread flour
  • 2 ¼ cups warm water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Instructions
 

  • In the bowl of your electric stand mixer add the water, sugar, and yeast. Let it foam for a few minutes.
  • Add the salt, oil and 3 cups of flour and turn on the mixer. Add in 2 ½ to 3 more cups of flour gradually until the ball is clear of the sides of the bowl.
  • Once you have a solid ball cover the bowl with a towel and let the dough rise for 10 minutes.
  • Turn on the mixer for 20 seconds and cover again. Repeat five times.
  • Turn the dough onto a lightly greased surface and divide in half.
  • Pat the dough into 9x12 inch sections. Then roll them longwise into loaves. Make sure to press out any air bubbles.
  • Put them seam side down on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make sure the loaves have plenty of room - you may want to use two pans.
  • Using a very sharp knife add slashes to the top of the loaf.
  • Cover with a kitchen towel, and let the loaves rise for about an hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and BAKE for 25-30 minutes. Cover with butter immediately after removing from the oven.
