Directions

Baguette Recipe

Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix until smooth dough forms

Use hand or mixer, however you prefer

Transfer the dough onto lightly floured working surface and knead about 5-7 minutes

Add as much extra flour as you need to work with the dough without it sticking too much

Don’t add too much flour!

Place the dough into lightly greased large bowl and cover with plastic wrap

Let it rest in a warm place until doubled in size (1-2 hours) minutes,depending on temperature

Divide the dough into 2 equal portions

Shape as desired (long baguette or oval,or round )

Place shaped breads on a lined baking pan (use foil or parchment paper, dust with cornmeal)

Lightly dust the tops with flour (optional)

Let the shaped loaves to rest and rise another 25-30 minutes covered with plastic or dry towel

At this point you can preheat the oven to 480Β° F/250Β° C degree

Prior baking ,using a sharp knife or a razor and make a few slashes on top of the breads

While placing the breads in the oven drop a few ice cubes inside the oven or spray with water and immediately close the door

Tip: Depending on the shape, baking time may vary

Long slim baguettes will bake faster than thick oval or round shaped ones,so keep an eye

When the bread has dark golden crust color take out ,should take 15-25 minutes

Allow the bread to cool down at least 15-20 minutes before slicing

  1. Hi…in the video…you add semolina to the water, milk and butter..before the yeast…but in the recipe there is no semolina added to the dough ingredients only for dusting the pan. Could you please let me know what is the quantity of semolina you added to the dough.

    Thanks.

  2. This recipe made wonderful dough; so easy to work with. Delicious taste!! Made my husband a panini out of it and he loved it! Will be trying the Naan recipe next. Love your videos too…..thanks.

    • I’m glad you liked it,
      Yes ,you can shape the bread however you prefer, it’ll still taste great.
      Thank you too for trying my recipe and for taking time to writing me:)

  3. Hello Heghineh, what is the purpose of putting honey in to a bread dough. Could it be avoided or its a must….

    • Hi Nelly,
      Honey is a healthy substitute for sugar and I find it also gives some breads slightly different, soft and tender texture, you can omit if desired or substitute with sugar:)

  4. Hello Heghineh,

    I want to let you know that this is the most delicious bread that I’ve ever tasted, not to mention how easy it was to make it. I want to let you know that ever since I’ve tried your recipe to bake a bread, my family does not want me to buy a bread from the store. πŸ™‚
    Thank you so much for sharing your recipes. Looking forward trying more of your recipes (by the way, I’ve also made barbari bread using your recipe and again turned out very good).

    Keep up the good work πŸ™‚

    • Hi Annie jan,
      Glad to hear that,and I appreciate you taking time and writing me.
      And I know what you’re saying ,my kids like homemade bread only ,so bake almost daily, luckily I truly enjoy doing that the most, so I’m not even complaining ,but doing more and more recipe tests,so expect more bread recipes in the future:)
