by | July 19, 2018

Looking for an easy baguette recipe? Look no further!

Crunchy, flaky and just so delicious, you might find that you need to make two at a time, just because you’ll have devoured one before it’s even had a chance to cool down. Break out the vegan butter, because nothing tastes as good as melting butter on a hot slice of this easy baguette recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 package dry yeast (about 2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 1 1/4 cups warm water (not hot or boiling)
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt

That’s right, that’s it!

 

Method

Step 1
  • Pour yeast in warm water in a large bowl; let stand 5 minutes.
  • Lightly mix in the flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife.
  • Add 2 3/4 cups flour to yeast mixture; stir until a soft dough forms. Cover and let stand 15 minutes.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; sprinkle evenly with salt.
  • Knead until the salt is incorporated and the dough is smooth and elastic (average 6 mins); add enough of remaining flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to prevent dough from sticking to hands (dough will feel really sticky).

Did I mention that this is a super easy baguette recipe? Three steps, that’s it. Now onto step two.

Step 2
  • Place dough in large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top.
  • Cover and let rise in warm place (85°), 40 minutes or until doubled in size. You can poke your fingers into the dough, if the indent stays, it is ready to go forward.
  • Punch dough down; cover and let rest 5 minutes. Then cut into two pieces.
  • Working with 1 portion at a time, ensure that you cover the remaining dough to prevent it from dying out, roll each portion on a floured surface into a 12-inch rope, slightly tapered at ends.
  • Place ropes on large baking sheet sprinkled with cornmeal.
  • Lightly coat dough with cooking spray, and cover; let rise 20 minutes or until doubled in size.
  • Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
Step 3
  • Uncover the dough. Cut 3 (1/4-inch-deep) diagonal slits across top of each loaf.
  • Bake at 450° for 20 minutes or until browned on bottom and sounds hollow when tapped.

THAT IS IT! You have yourself an easy baguette recipe, if not the easiest baguette around! 100% vegan, and 100% delicious!
