30 Minute French Bread

I “Pin” things on Pinterest all the time, I love it! I found this 30 minute French bread recipe a few weeks ago and I finally made it!

Its super easy and a lot of fun! You can find the recipe here or continue reading!

My bread isn’t “pretty” and I’m guessing it’s because I didn’t spend a lot of time kneading the dough…anyway here’s the recipe!

(P.S. My butter was delicious with this recipe!)

Quick & Crusty French Baguettes

2 cups very warm water
1 packet yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
3-4 cups flour

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.  Whisk together the warm water, yeast, and sugar.  Set the bowl on top of your preheating oven for ten minutes.  Then stir in the salt and add the flour a half-cup at a time, until the dough becomes soft but not sticky.  Knead the dough until elastic.

Cut the dough into four even pieces.  Roll each of them into four long, thin ropes.  Twist together two of the ropes to form one loaf.  Twist the other two ropes together to form a second loaf.  Transfer both onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

You can now bake the loaf right away (if you’re in a hurry) or allow it to rise for an additional 15-30 minutes on top of your warm oven.

Fill a cake pan with 3-4 cups of ice.  Place in your oven on the rack below your baguettes quickly shut the door.  Do NOT open your oven for 15 minutes.  Bake until golden brown, about 15-18 minutes.
