Crispy exterior, soft and tender interior with no crumbly mess, all the things you want from great French Baguettes, without the gluten.
3cupsbread flour blend
½ tspxanthan gum
2 ½ tsppsyllium husks, divided
1 ½ tsp salt
2tspfresh herbs,thyme & rosemary
1 ¾cupshot water,110-120 F
1tbsporganic cane sugar
5tbspolive oil,extra virgin
Line your pan with parchment paper.Fine chop your fresh herbs.
Add all the hot water, a thermometer. Make sure the thermometer reads between 110-120, then add you sugar, yeast, ½ psyllium husks and stir. Let yeast activate while you get the rest ready (2-3 minutes)
Measure flour, salt, xanthan gum, fresh herbs and other ½ psyllium husks into a large bowl. Whisk or mix with mixer.
Once yeast is bubbling on top, add to flour mix, add oil.Mix thoroughly.
Spoon batter into parchment lined baguette pan. Spray top with oil
Let rise in draft free, warm place for 45 minutes or so. I use the proof setting on my oven (100F)
Once bread has about doubled in size. Remove from oven if proofing in there.Preheat oven to 400 F
Once oven is to heat, add 2-4 Tbsp (or so) water to the oven to create steam. Close door to allow steam to fill oven, about 1 minute.Be careful when you open the oven door! Steam burns!! Add bread to oven. Set timer for 30 minutes.
Bread will brown on the outside, but if it looks like it will get too brown, cover with foil.
