French baguette


  • Add the 50 g lukewarm water into a bowl, add the yeast, and whisk with a fork to dissolve the yeast in the water. 
  • Leave the bowl at room temperature for 10 minutes, until the yeast is activated and the mixture starts bubbling on the surface.
  • In a mixer’s bowl add the flour, the yeast mixture, and beat with the hook attachment firstly at low speed and then at medium. 
  • Add the salt and the 280 g water in batches, while beating with the hook attachment for 5 minutes until you get a slightly sticky dough. 
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl. 
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave it at room temperature for 1 hour and 30 minutes, until the dough is double in size.

  • Roll out the dough into a 20x30 cm parallelogram sheet. 
  • Fold all the edges towards the center and divide the dough into three pieces.
  • Shape them into 25 cm long baguettes and make sure to make their edges a bit pointier. 
  • Transfer the baguettes to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and allow 1 hour for them to double in size, covered with a dish towel. 
  • Preheat the oven to 230οC (450ο F) set to fan. 
  • Put an oven-safe bowl with water into the oven in order to create moisture inside it.
  • Dust the baguettes with a little flour and score their surface diagonally.
