     French Baguette

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None

4.5 cups bread flour
1 tbsp active dry yeast
1 tsp salt
2 cups water (must be warm)

Mix the yeast and flour together in a bowl. Add salt and water. Mix together all the ingredients until you have a dough. It should be quite sticky and maybe even a bit lumpy. Spend the next 5-10 minutes kneading the dough until you have a smooth, soft texture.
Flour the surface of the dough, place in a bowl, cover with a damp teatowel and leave it to rise for about 1 hour. It should almost double in size. Preheat the oven to 240C or on your highest setting.
Then, take the dough out of the bowl and cut up into 6-8 rectangles. Roll them up into log shapes, making sure there aren't any air bubbles. Let them sit and rest for another hour or so.
Cut diagonal marks across the dough and place in the oven with a bowl of water (remove the bowl after about 5 minutes.)Bake for 15 minutes.
