  • 200 g / 8 oz - rye flour
  • 1 tsp - salt
  • 2 tsp - dried Yeast
  • 525 ml - warm water

How to Make French Baguettes

  • Sift the flour and salt in a large bowl.
  • Add yeast and warm water to it mix it well.
  • Gradually add half of the flour mixture to the water to make a batter.
  • Cover it with a cling film and leave it in a warm place to allow it to swell thrice its size and then let it collapse.
  • Then add the remaining flour and beat with your hand to make a smooth dough.
  • Place the dough in a clean oiled bowl and cover it with a cling film.
  • Keep it in a warm place and allow it to swell for an hour.
  • Divide the dough into 3 equal balls and stretch it into a length of 15 cm.
  • Shape each piece into an oblong.
  • Pleat a floured dish towel on a baking sheet to make 3 moulds to hold the dough.
  • Place the loaves between the pleats to help hold their shape while it swells.
  • Cover it with a lightly oiled cling film and leave it in a warm place to swell for about an hour.
  • Meanwhile preheat the oven to 230 degree Celsius.
  • Boil water in the kettle and pour it in a ceramic bowl.
  • Place it in the bottom of the oven to generate steam inside the oven.
  • Take the raised dough, roll it gently into a baking tray, slash it with a knife diagonally several times.
  • Bake it in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
