This recipe is definately very outstanding, and you actually don’t need a bread machine but you can still use one. Make sure you combine yeast and water and allow it to prove.

I lived in France for a long time and have tried many types of French baguettes recipes. This is the most comfortable and easy recipe you can use for your home baguette. In France, specoal ovens are used for baguettes. I just used my home oven for this recipe.

You can use a bread machine or you can just go ahead and make or knead the dough with your fingers.

You can actually add seeds , cheese and chopped olives .
