Nutritional values

The proportion of wholemeal wheat flour makes the baguette taste nice and hearty and also brings more vitamin B1 and magnesium into play - perfect for stress. The included dietary fibres ensure lasting satiation and keep the intestines in good condition.

A fresh mixed salad tastes excellent with this baguette. How about EAT SMARTER's Nice Salad, for example? A poem is the bread also with pickled olives. They contain valuable fatty acids that keep our heart healthy.

Preparation steps

1.
Baguette preparation step 1

In a bowl, combine 250 grams (approximately 1 cup) all-purpose flour, 225 grams (approximately 8 ounces) whole-wheat flour and 10 grams (approximately 1/2 ounce) yeast. Add 250 ml (approximately 1 cup) lukewarm water.

2.
Baguette preparation step 2

Beat with the dough hook of a hand mixer for 1 minute. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm spot for at least 12 hours.

3.
Baguette preparation step 3

After 12 hours, in a separate bowl, combine the remaining flours and make a well in the center. Add salt and crumble remaining yeast into well, then pour in 125 ml (approximately 1/2 cup) lukewarm water and let rest for 10 minutes.

4.
Baguette preparation step 4

Combine the ingredients from both bowls and use the hand mixer to knead the dough until thoroughly combined, about 4 minutes.

Turn out dough onto a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes by hand, adding a little more flour as needed to prevent sticking. 

6.

10.

11.
Baguette preparation step 11

Make several diagonal slashes in top of each loaf. Bake on the middle rack of preheated oven at 220°C (fan 200°C, gas: mark 3–4) (approximately 425°F ) until golden, 30-35 minutes.
