  • RECIPE MAKES: 4 large Baguettes
  • PREP TIME: 15min
  • COOK TIME: 35min & proof time 30min
Step 1

Line a baking tray; approx. 30cm x 40cm with baking paper.  Lightly spray with oil. 

Step 2

Place FATEMix, yeast, and salt into a mixing bowl.  Stir to combine. 

Step 3

Place oil, water, and browning essence into a jug.  Pour onto dry ingredients.  

Step 4

Using a hand-held electric mixer, blend; 1min.  

Step 5

Dust a clean work surface with extra FATEMix.  Using a large spoon, transfer dough to dusted surface.  Dust hands with a little FATEMix and shape dough into a ball.  Slice/section ball into quarters.  

Step 6

Lightly roll one quarter (on the dusted surface), into a sausage shape, approx. 20cm long. Repeat with remaining dough portions.   Transfer baguettes onto prepared baking tray, and leave in a warm place for proofing, approx. 30min.  Meanwhile, heat oven to 200°C.

Step 7

Using a knife dipped in water, make several slashes into the surface of each proofed baguette.  


Step 8

Bake 35min., until golden brown.  Transfer to a wire rack to cool. 

Serving Suggestion:

These baguettes freeze well.  Simply place in freezer bags and label with the date of baking.   They will stay fresh for up to 2 months.  


Top Tip:

A range of fillings can pack these baguettes for a complete meal; salad vegetables, roasted vegetables, low protein cheeses, the list goes on.  Baguette portions are also ideal for snacks, try topping with butter and 100’s and 1000’s for a sweet option!
