  1. Add water, yeast and flour to a bowl and mix with a spoon until smooth. (Or you can knead by your hand)
  2. Cover with a plastic wrap and let for fermentation at room temperature until bubbles appear on the surface.

Basic Dough:

  1. When starter is ready, in another bowl knead flour, water, starter, instant yeast and salt until smooth. (About 10 minutes)
  2. Make a big dough ball and cover, let sit for first fermentation until double sized.
  3. When double sized press slightly to the dough and make a ball again. Cover and let sit for second fermentation.
  4. After second fermentation sprinkle soe flour to the surface and cut the dough 2 pieces. Make two dough balls.
  5. Take the dough ball lightly floured surface and press slowly. Try to make rectangle shape. The rectangular shaped dough is rolled inward like a roll and wrapped. In each curl, each layer is pressed firmly with the finger. You can see how it is done on the video.
  6. Press the middle of the dough roll  by a little force, and press more forced on its light sides and it is extended with forward and backward movements and given a baguette bread shape.
  7. Take the shaped bread into the baking tray and let sit for last fermentation about30-45 minutes. Depends on room temperature. At this time pre-heat your oven to 240º C. And put 1/4 cup of hot water in it with a little heat proof cup.
  8. When bread is ready sift some flour on top and score the top with a razor blade.
  9. Without waiting place the bread pre-heated oven and lower the temperature to 220º.
