Sift flour and salt add to a large bowl, create a well in the center of the flour.
Pour in the warm milk and water and stir to combine. Add oil and give the water and give a quick mix. Sprinkle the yeast over the water then sugar over the yeast, lightly stir and cover with a towel, allow it to sit about 5 minutes for the yeast to activate.
Give the water a quick stir and mix the flour in. Transfer dough onto the countertop and knead about 4 minutes (just until dough is smooth). The dough should be slightly sticky but will not stick to hands.
Shape dough and place back into the bowl. Cover with a towel. Let rise two hours.
Take the dough and shape it into a long loaf (French bread-like). Twist the loaf (this will help it rise round and not a flat loaf).
Dust loaf with flour, cover the dough with a towel, rise for another 30 minutes.
Add 2 cups water to a baking dish and place it on the bottom rack of the oven. Preheat oven to 425˚F.
Bake bread for 20-25 minutes, until crust is crispy and golden.
Let the loaf cool completely before cutting. Enjoy!
You will also need 2 cups water in small baking dish! This will give the bread a beautiful crust.I just used an 8x8.
