Sweet Honey French Bread
October 09, 2006

I really liked the flavor of this loaf, but the loaf was really small. I used it for croutons, but the loaf would have been too small as a side for my family of 4. Overall the flavor was good, though, especially considering I was out of honey so I didn't really sweeten it at all. I would love to try it again doubling the recipe, but for my first attempt, I was disappointed that it didn't yield more. The second and 3rd times I made this, I was out of honey, so I substituted with molasses. Honestly, I prefer it this way! It makes the loaf taste more "rustic" sweet and less "sticky" sweet. Also, doubling the recipe worked a lot better -- we had enough for my family of 4. Its a really good, easy base recipe, but I have had to play with it to get it the way I like it.
