Makes 3 baguettes. I made it into 9 servings. For whole-wheat baguettes, use 3 cups whole-wheat flour and 1 cup white.

Recipe Ingredients for Baguettes

4 cups Flour
1 tbsp. Dry Active Yeast
1 tsp. Salt
2 cups Warm Water
2 tbsp. Oil

Recipe Directions for Baguettes

  1. In a bowl, mix together the flour and the salt.

  2. In another bowl, combine yeast, warm water, and half of the flour/salt mixture. Using your hands, mix until it forms a dough. Then, cover with a dish cloth and let sit at room temperature for 3 hours. It should triple in size.

  3. Gently incorporate the rest of the flour/salt, using your hands.

  4. Place on a lightly floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes. It should be supple and elastic when you stop kneading.

  5. Lightly oil a bowl. Place dough in bowl. Cover with a dish towel. Let sit for 1 hour. It should double in size.

  6. Preheat oven to 450°F. Knead again. Then cut dough into 3 parts and form each part into a long baguette. Place on a baking sheet. Let sit for at least 20 minutes.

  7. Place a bowl of water in the oven. Bake baguettes for about 25 minutes (maybe less). Remove the bowl of water after 15 minutes of baking.
