Easy French Bread

I made this while I was getting dinner ready tonight! It is that easy, but super delicious. The recipe is my sister-in-law Brenda's from our family cookbook.
2 1/2 c. Warm Water
2 tbsp. Sugar
2 tbsp. Yeast
2 tsp. Salt
2 tbsp. Oil
5-6 c. Flour

Combine water, sugar and sprinkle yeast on top. Allow to soften. Add oil, 3 cups of flour and salt. Mix well. Add remaining flour until it pulls away from the sides of the mixer. Knead 2-3 minutes. Divide into 2 balls and shape into loaves. Let rise about 30 minutes. With a sharp knife make 3 slashes 1/8 inch deep on top. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Butter the top when it comes out of the oven.
