French Bread is a crisp crunch crust and slightly chewy center make this bread. this bread actually comes from French cuisine. and all over Europe and America are being sold in many baker shops

Though I haven't any french bread pan that is traditionally baked. but I tried hard to make it fix shapes like french bread or long bread. You can also make cheese garlic bread from this bread loaf 

By law in France, bread cannot have added oil or fat. French baguettes, for instance, must be made from water, flour, yeast, and salt, with a very little amount of dough improver allowed. Italian bread often contains a little bit more milk, olive oil, and sometimes sugar in its contents.

While I made french bread in my style by adding little oil and milk. as per my thought, this type of bread without any fat/oil becomes so dry and chewier. like sookhi roti. and in our atmosphere probably people don’t like this is the reason. I kneaded the dough with milk to bring color to the bread and add some oil to bring some softness to the bread

Recipe notes:

French bread dough should not be so soft or nor hard rather it should be elastic dough to make light and fluffy bread 
If you will  keep dough so soft bread may out of shape during the proofing
Making slash over the dough using a sharp knife otherwise, it may deflate
Traditionally in french bread isn’t used sugar but I added some sugar to make balance the taste of bread. but you can skip if you want to make authentic style french bread
I haven't french bread baking pan so I used an ordinary baking pan by keeping flat wooden around the loaf to prevent shapelessly but If you have then is much better
