My faaavourite bread, Maria's fast baguette. Recipe for 3 small or 2 long baguettes:
- 3 dl water (37°C!)
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 12 g yeast
- 2 tablespoons salt
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 7 dl wheat flour, or whatever flour you like
Dissolve the yeast in the water and add the remaining ingredients. Mix well. Yes it's supposed to be a wet blob. Cover with a towel for at least one hour.
Set oven to 200°C. Pour a lot of flour on your working area and scoop out the dough. Split into two or three equal parts. Tap with flour, the dough should be covered with a thin layer of flour. Drag them out and twist, put on a baking-plate and cover with a towel for 15 min. Oven-time! Bake for appx. 15 minutes, they are done when slightly brownish. Brush with tiny bit of olive oil while still hot.
