I've been looking for a simple baguette recipe and somehow, I had to create one. Recently, I bought an iron plate, meant for Korean BBQ. This is a good replacement for baking tiles.
200g All Purpose Flour
50g Bread Flour
4g Instant yeast
Mix the dough well, knead it till smooth.
Leave to rise - I left it to rise for 5 hours.
Stretch and fold once. Leave to rise for a 2nd hour.
Shape and put into a banneton, and I left it to rise in the fridge for 8 hours.
The dough rose nicely in the fridge. Took out from the fridge and left it on the counter top for 1/2 hour.
Heat the oven at 250 degree celsius, takes about 20 minutes. At 10 minutes, I put in some water to steam the oven.
I flipped the dough out and put the dough on a baking paper and score the bread while the oven is heating up.
I put the dough and bake at 250 degree celsius for 10 minutes, and turn down the temperature to 230 degree celsius for 30 minutes. 15 minutes later, I spray water into the oven, and spray once more at the last 10 minutes.
The baguette came out singing. The inside was soft, a little tasteless, more salt will be better, perhaps I should leave it over night longer to get the taste. The scoring was done well, and I got the crust done well too. I just need to work on the taste now.
