Whether you call it a french stick, a breadstick, or a baguette, it doesn’t matter. This is the only baguette recipe you’ll ever need. It’s light, fluffy, and very tasty.
This is a classic French baguette that is crusty on the outside, but fluffy yet chewy on the inside. We love it and we hope that you do just as much.
It is classically a dough that is lighter or lean because it has no oil or fat added to it. That’s what gives it the chewy texture on the inside.
While it’s a little more complicated than other bread to master, be sure to follow the instructions step by step. For example, it needs a lot of rising time, and it’s a water bread, requiring a large amount of humidity to make the crust better.
All that being said, practice makes perfect, so let’s get into it, and make some great bread to enjoy!
This is a recipe for classic water bread. This means that it tends to get stale quickly, so it is best to be baked and eaten on the same day. But, if you add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, it will improve the longevity of the bread. It will slightly change the texture though, and make the bread a little denser.
