Simple (20 minute) French Baguette

Pin It

This recipe is amazingly easy, and amazingly delicious!! There are only 5 ingredients, and you don't need to wait for it to rise.  Yes, isn't it getting better by the second?  I always think about making bread for dinner a little too late, since bread has to rise for a few hours.  This recipe can be done in about 20 minutes. No, I am not joking.

1 1/2 Tbsp yeast
1/2c. warm water
1 tsp. sugar
Let the yeast proof~ get bubbly

In another bowl mix:
3 1/2 c. flour (you can use ANY kind of flour~ even gluten free flours work well) 
1 tsp. sugar
2 tsp. salt
1 c. warm water. 

Add in yeast/water mixture & mix well.  Knead on a floured surface for about 5 minutes.  Break into 2 chunks and foll (from the inside out) into long strips.  Make one long thin slice down the middle of the loaf.  Cook in an oven preheated to 450 for 12-15 minutes.

Slather with butter while hot and eat half a baguette, 'cause you just can't stop yourself.


Karen, this looks scrumptious! I will pass it along to The Chef at so that he can "taste test" it on ME! Thanks for sharing!
