Baguette Recipe by: GlutenFree
Ingredients: serve 1 baguette
12 pound master dough follow recipe
1 egg white, for brushing loaf
1 tablespoon water, for brushing loaf
Rice flour, for dusting

Prepare master dough as instructed.

On baking day, generously dust the surface of the dough with rice flour. Place ½ pound piece of dough ( orange sized) on a pizza peel or a heavy baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Shape dough into a skinny cylinder with pointed ends. Teh dough with not stretch, so just press, squeeze and pat it into a baguette using flour dusted hands. Once shaped, smooth it with wet fingers. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rest abut 40 minutes. During this time, the dough may not appear to rise much, which is normal.

Preheat a baking stone on the middle rack of the oven to 450 oF (20 to 30 minutes). Place an empty metal broiler tray on another rack that won’t interfere with rising bread.

Place egg white and water in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Brush the top of the loaf with egg white mixture. Make several ½ inch deep slashes in the loaf using a wet serrated bread knife or a sharp razor

Slide the loaf onto the hot stone or heavy baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover interior oven glass with a towel, pour 1 cup of hot tap water into the broiler tray, remove the towel, and quickly close the oven door. Bake about 35 minutes or until loaf is browned and firm.

Remove baguette from oven and let cool completely on a rack before eating. End.

If frozen, thaw the loaves at room temperature before baking. Then follow the instructions for rising ad baking times.
