French Bread / Franskbrød

A classic French bread recipe found in “The Fleischmann Treasury of Yeast Baking” published in 1962
French Bread / Franskbrød

The French call their long, slender loaves of crusty bread “pain ordiaire,” or “everyday bread.” They serve it at almost every meal, from breakfast where it accompanies the morning coffee or hot chocolate, through dinner, where it is used to “mop up” every bit of sauce or gravy.

Because of its rather bland flavour, it may accompany any main dish. Its crispness makes it a special attraction with soups, salads and soft entrees such as spaghetti or eggs. It may even appear with the dessert course when dessert is cheese and fruit.
