Homemade French Baquette

Baguettes are long thin loaves of bread, popular in France, but now common in many other countries. Usually, they are made of white bread. Baguettes usually have a hard crust on the outside but soft white bread on the inside.

French traditions say that bread may only contain the following four things: flour, water, yeast and salt.

The baguette is thought as to have come from France, but it actually came from Vienna. In the middle of the nineteenth century, steam ovens had just been brought into use. This allowed loaves to be made with a crispy crust and the white centre, similar to today’s baguettes.

Smooth taste and crisp, golden crust make it the perfect French bread to serve with any meal. Ideal for sandwiches, perfect for dips, and excellent with soups.

Once you start making it at home, you won’t want to stop.
