Help in providing a baguette Recipe

Hi All,

I’m a new member, I’m African lives in Saudi Arabia thinking of starting a Deli in Saudi Arabia but bread here sucks. Please I need your help in providing a baguette Recipe which easy to bake in order to try it please note it is very hot & humid where I am & flour here is local with 7% protein in addition all what I can find here is active yeast only.

Thank you,

Naj

Hi, Naj

A good baguette formula would be this one: http://www.thefreshloaf.com/handbook/poolish-baguettes.

What deli are you planning to start? As to flour and yeast, i think that the 7% protein flour you are referring to is cake flour, not all purpose or bread flour. In Saudia, i believe that All purpose flour is anywhere between 9.5-10.5% protein, which is quite suitable for baguettes.

Wishing you all the best,

-Khalid

Active yeast should work as well as any other yeast, including fresh yeast. Active dry yeast, instant yeast, and fresh yeast will all do the job.
