After a long tiring weekend, my family just wanted to have light dinner and I also didn’t want to cook. So I thought of making vegetable soup and some bread to go along with it. A very hassle free recipe which gives a soft chewy baguette in just two hours. No need to pay attention or need to knead several times. If you have stand mixer then the work will be done easier and if not then kiss your magic hand. 🙂
A very easy and quick recipe for Baguette.
1 cup+ 1 Tblsp whole wheat flour
1/2 cup bread flour
3/4 tsp active dry yeast
3/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup lukewarm water(110F)
1/2 tsp sugar
2 tsp garlic powder
1 Tblsp dried rosemary
In a stand mixer bowl pour yeast, water and sugar and let it ferment for five minutes.
After five minutes add rest of the ingredients. Attach dough hook and knead for five minutes. The dough should be soft and pliable.
Cover the bowl with cling wrap and keep it in a warm place for 40- 50 mins to rise.
After 45 mins punch down the dough. Place the dough on the floured board and shape into a loaf. Cover the loaf with a towel. At the same time preheat the oven at 450 degrees F. While the oven is getting ready, the dough will be set for second rise.
When the oven is ready slash two cuts on the dough with a knife. Mist some water on the dough. Slide the dough into the the baking pan. Spray mist occasionally. Bake for 20- 22 mins until golden and sounds hollow when knocked.
Cool the baguette on cooling rack. After 10 mins slice the baguette diagonally.
