The French baguette is an iconic bread that is a symbol of French culture and cuisine. Its long, thin shape and crispy crust make it instantly recognizable, and it is a staple in bakeries and homes throughout France and beyond.
These gluten-free French baguettes have a delicious thin, crisp outside crust and are soft on the inside with nice air pockets throughout. The dough for this gluten-free French baguette is simple to make, but does take some waiting time. Perfect gluten-free baguette for sandwiches, garlic bread, and bruschetta.
Baking tools and kitchen utensils
For this recipe I’ve used a non-stick perforated French Baguette bread pan to form perfectly shaped baguettes. You can find them here on Amazon (#ad).
If you’re looking to start baking bread at home, there are a few essential basic baking tools that you’ll need to get started. First and foremost, you’ll need a large mixing bowl, a scale, a dough scraper, a bread knife, and a baking sheet. A stand mixer or a hand mixer with dough hooks can also be helpful. I just love my Artisan stand mixer from KitchenAid and can’t do without, buy here (#ad) on Amazon.
Besides, you may also want to invest in a bread proofing basket, a digital thermometer, measuring cups and spoons and a bread lame for scoring the dough. With these basic tools, you’ll be well on your way to baking delicious homemade bread.
