500g bread flour
1 . Place all the ingredients in a stand mixer. Make sure the yeast and salt are on opposite sides. Use the dough hook to mix for about 5 minutes.
2 . Set aside to rise in a greased bowl for 2 hours.
3 . Divide into 3-4 portions and shape into whatever shape you desire and place them on your baking tray or baking tin. (I also dust the top of my bread with some flour and it gets that really rustic look)
4 . Set aside and rise for another 1 hour.
5 . Bake at 220 degrees celsius with a small ramekin of water for 25 minutes.
What’s on my mind…
I found this recipe on Paul Hollywood’s website and fell in love with it right after the first try. It is so easy and makes a really nice baguette which smells awesome and tastes just right.
