In a mixer, blend all ingredients on your mixer’s first speed for 4 minutes, and then for an additional 6 minutes on your mixer’s second speed. Maintain dough temperature at 75°F (24°C). Let the dough rise for 1 hour.


Next, divide dough by hand and round the dough, if needed, and let balls of dough rest for 20 minutes before shaping into baguettes. Place formed baguettes into a proofer for 60 – 75 minutes at room temperature.


To bake, place baguettes into a preheated 440°F (227°C) deck oven with steam and bake until a deep golden, hard crust has formed. Please note that baking times will vary and depend on the size of the baguettes.
