baguettes... like I do...

Iīve been asked for the recipe for the Baguette how I make.

Ok. Letīs go ( It takes a lot of time to translate it)

The sponge:

250 g white flour
330 ml Water
10 g Fresh yeast......

With this ingredients you make the sponge ca. 12 hours before youīll make the rest of the Baguette dough.


The sponge (590 g)
800 g White flour
400 ml Water
10 g fresh yeast
4 TS Salt

12 hours before you will make the dough you must make a sponge. Take it to a warm place for this time and let him go for 12 hours.

After the 12 hours you take the flour, water, salt and sponge and make a smooth dough . The dough must solve from the bowl. You must knead it for min. 8 Min.

Put the dough in a buttered bowl a let him grow up till it is the double.

Put the dough now on the worktop and make 3 pieces. Each piece form to a sausage. The you must lay it on a baking plate. It must go for ca. 1 hour.

Just before you put the baguettes into the oven, cut them diagonal short like in the following picture). And make water with a brush on it.

Than put the baguette in the oven for 250°C. Put a pan with a lot of hot water on the oven ground. (Itīs good for the volume).

Bake them for ca. 20-25 Min. in the oven and bake them till they are gold brown.


Ok, I hope that yóu make it.

Love your life, than the life loves you

thanks for the translation - and the loaves look great! I would never attempt to sit down and try to translate a recipe into another language - that must've taken a lot of work! Tx again!
