Ingredients


3.5 Tbsp Warm Water

2 Tsp Yeast

3 Cups of flour (16 oz)

1.5 Cups Cold Water (10 oz)

1 Tsp Salt

Everything Better blend

Ravensview Rosemary Garlic blend


To begin, bloom your yeast.  Mix 3.5 tbsp warm water and yeast together.  Let sit to bloom for 5 minutes.  You will see the yeast bubble and foam, it is a beautiful thing!



Meanwhile, mix flour and salt in a bowl to combine, you can weigh the flour and the water or use the cup measure. 




Make a well in the middle and add the yeast.  Now add the water and mix together so that you have a really loose dough.  





Cover with plastic wrap and let it sit for 30 minutes.



Turn dough out onto a floured surface.  Dust the top of the dough with a little flour, it is very sticky! Pat it into a rectangle.  



Fold it by thirds, kind of like you would fold a letter.  Then turn 90 degrees and fold by thirds again.  





Place into an oiled bowl, cover with plastic and let it rise for 1.5 hours.



While the dough is rising lets prepare for the final rise.  Take a large kitchen towel, make 4 sections, and dust with a little flour.  Set aside. 



Turn out on a floured surface again.  



Divide into four pieces.  



Using your palms, roll out into a cylindrical shape.  Try to kind of taper the ends.  It does not need to be perfect!  




Place baguettes onto the floured wells in the towel, cover with another clean towel, and let it rest for around 30 minutes.




Place an ovenproof pan at the bottom of your oven and fill it with really hot water, then preheat the oven to 425 degrees.



After the final rise, move baguettes carefully to another sheet pan.  Carefully slit them with a serrated knife and give a little dusting of flour.  



Now spritz with water and add whichever seasoning you wish to use.  I used Everything Better on two baguettes, and Ravensview Rosemary Garlic on one.  One I left plain.




Place in oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes.  It truly depends on your oven so keep a close eye.  




You want a deep golden brown color and it should sound hollow when you tap it.  Let them cool for a few minutes and enjoy!  You can wrap them and freeze them, the reheat beautifully in the over; 350 degrees for just about 6 minutes.
