Crusty Baguette with Herb Oil

I found the recipe for this bread on Pinterest a couple weeks ago, and its possibly one of the best ones I've found on there yet! It's super easy and delicious. I made some for a holiday party at work a few weeks ago, and literally, it was gone within 15 minutes of me bringing it in. It was a huge hit, and lucky for me, I saved a loaf at home so I got to eat more later!

Funny story though, in the recipe, she mentions to keep adding flour until the dough is elastic and smooth, and I doubled the recipe, but then forgot I had doubled it, so when I had added 2 extra cups of flour and still had watery dough, I was starting to worry! But then I remembered I doubled it, so it was ok!

This is a perfect Holiday recipe! It would be great as an appetizer or as part of a meal.

Crusty Baguette
From Brooke McClay on Babble Blogs
This lovely picture was taken on my phone. ha


2 c warm water
1 packet yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
2 T sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
3-4 c flour

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
2. In a large bowl, lightly whisk the warm water, yeast, and sugar. Set the bowl on top of the preheating oven for 10 minutes.
3. Stir in the salt and add the flour 1/2 c at a time, until the dough becomes soft, but not sticky. Knead until elastic(or let your KitchenAid knead it until its elastic :) ).
4. Cut the dough into four even pieces. Roll each of the into 4 long, thin ropes. Twist together 2 of the ropes to form one loaf. Twist the other two to form a second loaf. Transfer both onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
5. Bake the loaf right away, or allow to rise for an additional 15-30 minutes on top of the heated oven.
6. Place your pans in the oven, then fill a large bowl with 3-4 cups of ice. Toss the ice cubes on the bottom of the oven, and quickly shut the door. This acts as a steamer and helps create the crispiness on the bread.
7. Bake until golden brown, about 15-18 minutes.
8. Serve with Herb Oil(recipe below).

Herb Oil
From CD Kitchen

1 tsp each of:
crushed red pepper
ground black pepper
dried oregano
dried rosemary
dried basil
dried parsley
garlic powder
sea salt

1/4 c extra virgin olive oil

1. Combine the spices, and pour the oil over when ready to serve.




This is my Culinary Arts final. I was in a group with 3 other awesome girls all semester, and we got to cook stuff together every week. For our final, we were assigned specific foods and cooking methods, so we made green beans wrapped in bacon, poached salmon covered in a tomato basil sauce with mushrooms, potatoes duchesse, and candied rutabaga and carrots.
