French Bread

2 1/2 teaspoons yeast
1 1/8 cups warm water
1 teaspoon sugar

Dissolve together above ingredients and set aside.

In mixing bowl, blend together:
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon oil
3 Tablespoons honey (I add a bunch extra so that each tablespoon is way overflowing with honey.)

Mix the flour ingredients and yeast mixture together and knead well. Cover with waxed paper that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Let rise until doubled in size. Punch dough down. Roll dough out in a rectangular shape and then roll up like cinnamon rolls. Cut the traditional five slits in the top of the bread. Place on greased cookie sheet. Cover with sprayed waxed paper again and let dough rise until doubled. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Butter the top when done baking.
