I am really passionate about baking and bakery, so very soon I came across the recipe for the French baguette. I regret not trying it earlier, it’s delicious bread, it’s easy to make and it is always a nice touch for a meal. Just as in the Ciabatta bread recipe, there is little effort, you only need to be a bit organized in order to be able to serve the baguette when you plan to.
The total preparation time is approximately 5 hours, but don’t get scared – it’s mostly time in which the dough stays in the bowl and rises. The work is easy and you have 4 main ingredients, the rest is just a bit of technique and attention. It is worth the effort of serving a real French baguette, crusty and nicely flavored.
