Recipe Ingredients for Homemade baguettes

1.5 cup (8 fl oz) Water
3.25 cup All Purpose Flour
7.5 tsp Active Dry Yeast
2 tsp Salt, Table
2 tsp Sugars, Granulated

Recipe Directions for Homemade baguettes

  1. In a small bowl mix the warm water with the 2 packages ofyeast and sugar. Let it sit for about 5 minutes ? foam should form on the top.

  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the flour and salt. Gradually add the yeast mixture. Mix until the dough becomes a smooth ball and knead for 5 minutes. (I use my Kitchen Aid with the dough hook)

  3. Cut in half and then shape into 2 baguettes. To make them smooth and pretty, roll each half of dough into rectangle and roll up lengthwise. Pinch the edges to seal and place on lightly greased cookie sheet (or silpat) with seam down. Cover and let it rise for 30 minutes.

  4. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. With a very sharp knife (I like to use a serrated blade) gently make a slash down the length of each baguette. This will give it that authentic look. Pour water in a cookie sheet and place it on the bottom rack of the oven. Bake the bread for 15 minutes. Half way through, brush the bread with melted butter. **I tried it with olive oil too? it was less crispy and salty. We liked the butter a lot more!
