the ultimate french baguette








I know I have said this before, I love to make bread at home! 
So I dont eat so much  of other breads from groceries ... 

About  baguette  recipes(bread that I like) I have 3 or 4 recipes but this is "The ultimate french baguette" and  comes from a very simple book called "Bread") and have done several  bread of it .  I had to do this recipe twice that day OMY 
So I have call  the ultimate baguette ... 
Because it is the one that I liked .. 
In any case what I always say, if you're making bread, patience, love and all those things, you can't make bread hurry. 
I usually do in the morning while the first part and do other things and then come back. 
And indeed it has been so good!

Enjoy dears:))

Pan baguette














Adoro hacer pan cuando puedo.
Escierto que hay que estar tranquila porque el pan requiere paciencia y espera.
Pero generalmente lo hago en la mañana temprano y voy haciendo otras cosas mientras tanto.
He hecho varias baguettes y eran realmente buenas. Pero esta me ha gustado tanto que la agrego a las otras.
Es de un pequeño librito que he hecho varios panes y todas las recetas buenas.
Salen dos baguettes medianas y se conservan muy bien hasta tres  dias.

Ingredientes

450 gramos de harina con polvos de hornear
1 1/2 cucharadita de sal 
1/3 cucharadita de azucar
1 sobre de levadura seca (10 g)
325 ml de agua tibia
aceite para engrasar bol

Preparación

Tamizar la harina y la sal en un bol e incoporar la levadura y el azucar. (es solo un poquito de azucar que ayuda a la levadura en el proceso)
Hacer un hoyo en el centro y agregar de a poco uniendo el gua tibia.
Al principio uso una cuchara de madera y despues las manos.
Mezclar hasta que la masa comienze a ligarse y trabajar con las manos hasta que se desprenda del bol.
Volca encima de la mesa de cocina espolvoreada con harina y trabajar unos 10 minutos más hasta que quede elástica.
(se puede agregar un poco de harina si se necesita)
Engrasar un bol con aceite. Poner la masa en el bol tapar y dejar leudar en un lugar tibio o cálido hasta que doble su volumen por una hora.
Amasar un par de minutos mas.
Dividir la masa en dos formando una bola con cada porción.
Extender cada masa en forma de rectangulo. Doblar un tercio de un extremo largo sobre sí mismo y despues hacer lo mismo con la otra porción. Presionar con suavidad.
Tapar y dejar reposar 15 minutos.
Hacer las baguettes y dejar leudar unos 30 a 40 minutos.
Mientras tanto precalentar el horno a unos 200°c Engrasar las bandejas de horno con aceite y colocar un pocillo apto para horno con agua. (para la humedad)
Colocar las baguettes en las bandejas y marcar con unos pequeños cortes. Hornear unos 20 minutos o hasta que esté dorado y seco.
Dejar enfriar en una rejilla.

  3. Gloria, We avoid having bread in the house and we don't do much baking. We both love good bread...and yours looks terrific...but if it's in the house, I'll make sandwiches all day long! This of course leads to extra weight and a beating by my doctor. Nevertheless...I am now craving a good hunk of fresh buttered bread! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  37. I am addicted to baguettes...and these look absolutely mouth-watering!
    I love making bread too. I have never used a bread-making machine though. I love the feeling of the dough in my hands as I knead and shape it.
