My first BAGUETTE

CIMG0220

I love baguettes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I finished 3/4 of one large one on the way home a couple of months ago.

My brother loves baguettes.

He finished 1 large baguette for tea break.

My mom and dad love baguettes.

They finished 1 gigantic baguette together.

My family loves baguettes.

We finished 4 baguettes in less than 30 minutes.

We blame it on our genes.

I baked baguettes today. With wholemeal flour too. I couldn’t help it. Really. 100% white flour? Just kill me. No way. So obviously I had to change the recipe. And again risk failure

I got my baguettes. My mum and I finished all of them before my dad could even snick a bite.

I’ll make them again.

After all, my family loves baguettes.

Bake wholemeal BAGUETTES

Adapted from Steamy Kitchen


Ingredients

(Dough)

 Instant Yeast  ½ tsp
Salt ½ tsp
 Bread Flour ¾ cup
Wholemeal  flour ¼ cup
Warm Water ¾ cup
Sugar ½ tsp

 

 

 

 

Method:

1.      Mix yeast, flours, salt and sugar together till even

2.      Add all the water and mix with a dough hook at medium speed for 3 minutes. Add additional water/flour 1 tablespoon at a time if the dough is too dry/wet.

3.       Let dough rest for 5 minutes. You can wash your utensils.

4.      Continue mixing with dough hook for 5 minutes.

5.      Flip dough onto a floured surface. Shape it into a ball. Put it in a floured bowl and cover with wet towel.

6.      Place it in an oven with a bowl of hot water in it. Let rise for 1 ½ hours.

7.      Cut dough into 2 portions and roll each portion into a ball. Using a rolling pin, spread it into an oval shape. From one long end of the oval, roll the dough to form a weird rod. Seal the edges together tightly. Cut 3-4 cuts on each loaf with a knife. Place on a baking sheet that has non- stick paper on it and cover with wet cloth. Preheat oven to 220 °C. Let rest for 30 minutes.

 

Preparing the pan 

 Spread sheet over baking pan and press down nicely

 

To finish

Demerara sugar 2 tbs (1 per loaf)
Water (in a spray bottle)

Spray the loaves with water and sprinkle them with the sugar.

Bake for 20 minutes.


These baguettes are going to yeastspotting!
