Day 45: Baguette

After checking countless numbers of bread recipe's I realized I could just make Baguette!

Then began my search of baguette recipes with the keyword, "Baguette with all-purpose flour". Before long I found this amazing baguette recipe, and I used my mom's bruschetta recipe to finish off this amazing dish!


5-6 steps to complete this delicious dish!

Because I used 1 whole packet my yeast mixture became so big and frothy!

After the dough has doubled, fold from one side to the middle and fold the opposite side from the middle. Keep doing this until it's 12" long.

With a knife you can cut 1/2" deep slits into the dough.

Bake and cut!

You can also eat this with butter, or even make a baguette sub!

I made bruschetta with this recipe.



RECIPE:

INGREDIENTS:

1 envelopes dry active yeast (1 1/2 tablespoons)

1 tablespoons honey

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting

1 teaspoons salt

1 cups water

Cornmeal, for dusting pan

3 to 4 ice cubes

STEPS:

Preheat an oven at 450 degrees and dust some cornmeal over a baking sheet.

Combine yeast, honey and 1/2 cup warm water in a bowl. Wait 5 minutes or until it starts foaming and doubling in size.


In a stand mixer add in flour, salt and the yeast mixture. Slowly add the remaining water and knead. Proof in a warm area for 30 minutes or until the dough has doubled.


Once ready punch down dough and make a rectangle. Take one of the long ends and fold it into the middle. Do that to the other side and keep folding until the dough becomes 12" long. Fold the ends and cut 1/2" deep slits into the dough. Put into a baking sheet and proof for another 25 minutes.


Bake for 15 minutes with ice on a tray underneath the dough.


Enjoy!
