I used this quick baguette recipe to make the buns for the Caramelized Onion BBQ Burger .It's very simple, doesn't require many ingredients and is extremely flavorful. 
This lean dough recipe can be made up into any shape you want: sticks, loaves, buns - you choose!

Preparation time: 2hrs 30 min
Yield: 2 Medium Baguettes or 6 Buns/ Sub-Buns

  • 300g Warm water
  • 500g Bread Flour
  • 10g Salt
  • 20g Sugar
  • 10g Dry yeast

In a bowl, start by dissolving the yeast and sugar in the water. Then add in the flour and salt, mix all ingredients and knead for about 10 minutes.

Place the dough on a slightly greased bowl, cover and let it ferment for 1 hr or until it doubles in size. 

When that happens, it's time to start shaping your bread. To form baguettes split the dough in half and with your two hands start rolling from the inside out to form the sticks. To form buns, take about 80g of dough and with you hand flat open, press it slightly against the dough and make circular movements, until it forms an uniform ball. 

Place the formed baguettes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and let it ferment once again for another hour. 

Pre-heat oven to 400 F (200 C). Place a small pan or baking sheet filled with water in the oven.

Score the top of your bread using a very sharp knife dusted with flour. For baguettes, make diagonal cuts and for buns make a cross at the top. Brush the top of your buns with water.

Bake your bread for the first 10 minutes with the water pan or baking sheet in the oven. Then remove the water and continue to bake for about 5 / 10 minutes more, until bread has developed a nice golden color. 

- If you are out of parchment paper (as I was) you can lightly spread a bit of oil on the baking sheet and dust the bread with a little bit of semolina.

  1. I don't have a mixer so I tend not making yeast breads and cakes so much.
    This baguette looks really tasty!

  2. You can make this bread by hand too. You have to be prepared to work with your hands and arms but the result is totally worth it. Thanks for stopping by :)
