Sourdough Demi Baguette

  • All the sponge above
  • 190 g Water, lukewarm
  • 470 g All-purpose flour
  • 60 g Rye flour
  • 12 g Salt
  1. Combine the sponge ingredients and allow the mixture to rest for 12 to 18 hours at room temperature until it�s fully activated. Combine all of the dough ingredients, but salt, and mix on low speed for 2 minutes, till they are well-blended. Allow the mixture rest for 30 minutes, allowing the flour to absorb the water. Add in salt and knead the dough till it's firm and elastic.
  2. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap for 50 minutes in a warm place. Remove the dough from the bowl and place it on a lightly-floured surface, gently pat down flat and fold like an envelope, all four sides being brought over the center of the dough. Return the dough into the bowl, cover and let ferment for another 50 minutes. Pat down, fold and round up. Place the dough back in the bowl, cover with a plastic wrap and let ferment until about doubled. Divide the dough into 5 equal portions and shape each into a sandwich loaf, namely demi baguette. Proof the demi baguettes, covered, in the folds of a linen or baking paper. Dust them with flour, cover, then refrigerate overnight. Next morning, remove the loaves from the fridge, and let them sit, still covered, for about 30 minutes at room temperature.
  3. Place a shallow pan in the bottom of the oven and start preheating to 250C/500F. Use tiles or stones on the oven rack. Slash with a razor knife across top of loaves and slide the loaves onto the heated baking stone. Pour a cup of very hot water into the water pan. Close the door and bake for 12 minutes. Lower the temperature to 200CT/400F and continue baking the loaves until golden brown, about 20-25 minutes. Cool them on a rack.

Wowo thos baguttes look so so perfect.
I don't have any tiles. Which is a real pity. From what shop can you get the tiles and is there a name.

Angie's Recipes 2/4/10 19:16

Happy Cook: I got them from the garden of my parents-in-law. I think those small marble stones would work too.

MaryMoh 2/4/10 19:17

Looks perfect....awesome texture. I would love to have one in my hand and biting into it even without any filling. I would even love to smell it. Fresh bread just smells and tastes soooo good.

Anonymous 2/4/10 19:26

Just lovely. I aspire to be a bread baker like you!

Pei-Lin@Dodol and Mochi 3/4/10 15:26

OH, MY!! You've made my jaw drop! Very professional-looking bread!! I love rustic European country bread, too, besides our softer, fluffier Asian bread! In fact, I just baked my first artisan bread last Sunday!! Thanks for sharing! You've been my inspiration, really! ;)

Tangled Noodle 3/4/10 16:52

These demi-baguettes are absolutely perfect! [Sigh] I can imagine the heavenly aroma as they baked. 8-)

carmenpiva 3/4/10 17:37

Wow! Amazing! I must tell you a secret: I've just bought a baking machine, I don't know how they are called exactly in English, but I'm really happy with it. I haven't bought any more bread at the baker's, the machine makes it for us.

tigerfish 5/4/10 08:07

I like sourdough. They are common in San Francisco but not here in Singapore. With your sourdough baguette, I'm thinking of my Roti John again! What is better than your bakes :D

Ju (The Little Teochew) 5/4/10 09:51

The great Angie does it again! Beautiful loaves!!

Pete 5/4/10 13:06

Wow, can imagine the nice aroma and crispiness when hot out from the oven.

petite nyonya 5/4/10 15:10

The baguettes look perfect! I like to have slices of baguettes dipped in chicken curry. Yummy!

Arlette 5/4/10 16:32

These baquettes look awesome..
did you try the pineapple starter...or you prefer the raisin.
still using the raisin, and didnt get the chance to try the pineapple to compare the different.

Cheah 5/4/10 17:46

Once again lovely pics, Angie and your baguette looks like those from the bakery!

The Duo Dishes 9/4/10 02:40

It is time that we make a baguette. Definitely time!

Cocina Savant 13/4/10 00:04

I am now wishing I would have made some bread last weekend. Yours turned out splendid and grape sourdough is quite excellent. I have some in the fridge begging to be used. Thanks for the recipe.

Diana's Cocina 6/5/10 02:01

PERFECT!! All I need is a bowl of soup.

Arlette 17/5/10 17:21

Made the pineapple starter last week and I am going to try it this week and see the result, smell good though...
