This recipe was developed for the Home Bakery Virtuoso® Breadmaker (BB-PAC20), Home Bakery Supreme® Breadmaker (BBCC-X20/BB-CEC20) and the Home Bakery Mini Breadmaker (BB-HAC10). Adjustments may be required for baking this bread in other models of the Home Bakery.


Following the instruction manual, prepare the dough using the ingredients listed.


When the DOUGH course completes, remove the dough and divide into two, and shape into a ball. Cover with a damp cloth and let rest for 20 minutes.


Flatten each dough to about a 6”x 8” oval. Fold the dough in half lengthwise, and seal the edges. Flatten it slightly, and fold and seal again. With the seam-side down, cup your fingers and gently roll the dough into a 12” log (11” for BB-HAC10 model).


Place the logs onto a baking pan (lightly greased or parchment-lined), cover with a damp cloth and allow the loaves to rise till they have doubled in size (about 40-60 minutes). Preheat your oven to 470°F.


Using a sharp knife, make 3-5 slashes on each baguette and spritz with water. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.


Let bread cool and serve.
