    Simply delicious, easy to make French bread rolls - perfect for a dinner party or family lunch. Dough can be made in mixer, bread maker or by hand. Brush before baking with a glaze of 1 beaten egg white mixed with 1 tablespoon water if desired. You can also top with poppy seeds or sesame seeds.

    This is a heavenly alternative to any shop-bought French stick. Perfect eaten fresh from oven or used to make sandwiches or garlic bread.

    A homemade French bread that will make 2 loaves. Any leftovers make great garlic bread. Mixing it will give your arm a workout, so use a sturdy spoon!

    A simple French style country bread. I use just enough wholemeal flour to give it some flavour but not so much that it's heavy. I use an overnight starter to give it extra flavour.
