key01-yaaFrench Baguette



Oh the bread make your house smell so good
The crust on the outside and the softness from the inside
Picture the garlic spread on a toasted baguette, YUMMY!

So lets make it without a bread machine
Instant dry yeast 5g
Warm water 180ml ( I used tap water)
Sugar 1pinch
Bread Flour 300g
Oil 1Tsp
Salt 6g
Corn starch 1Tsp + Water 210ml

1- Add dry yeast and sugar to the warm water, stir and let it sit for 5min
2- Bread flour in a large bowl, make a hole in the middle and stir in the yeast mixture with the back of a wooden spoon or a wooden chopstick
3- Use your hand and knead the dough till you get a smooth surface, around 5min
4- Grase a large bowl with oil, place the dough inside, cover up with plastic wrap, sit in a warm place for 2 hours
5- Sprinkle flour on the working surface, punch all the air out off the dough, cut it in halves, roll into a ball, and flatten it to 0.5cm thick, roll it up again to form a long baguette shape
6- Place the 2 baguette on a baking sheet, sprinkle some water, let it rise for 1 hour
7- Before baking, make 3 smooth cut on the bread, brush corn starch mixture on the bread, repeat brushing the bread every 5min, bake 360'f for 15min
