One Hour Baguette

Can you believe this bread is ready in an hour! It is so delicious and so easy to make! Have fresh bread with dinner tonight!

Want fresh bread with dinner tonight but don’t think you have the time? This one hour baguette is ready to hit the table in no time! Fresh bread is easier than you think! 


My step-Dad is the king of bread. He has a sourdough starter that he takes care of like a pet, and every time he makes a new variation I am the lucky recipient of his experiments!! Why? Because I am a self-confessed, shameless carbivore. I love bread… love it, love it love it.  So Michael considers me an expert, and I am glad to lend my expertise!!

Sometimes though I have to bake my own bread! (I know poor me!) I have several recipes I love but none that are as quick and easy as this one! It is a fantastic week night go-to perfect with pasta or a salad… or anything!

The amount of yeast is not a typo. The big ol’ spoon of yeast is what helps these rise quickly and be nice and fluffy.

I whipped up a batch of this bread just last week and was reminded of how fantastic it is so I decided it needed to make a comeback this week!

Ever want fresh bread with dinner, but don’t think you have the time?

Think again!!

Here my friends is a recipe for a delicious baguette (actually 2) ready in about an hour. Perfect with pasta, or soup, or just to eat shamelessly with some butter!

Want fresh bread with dinner tonight? Make this one hour baguette! It is so easy and super tasty, perfect with any meal!

Here’s what you’ll need for this one hour baguette

1 1/2 Cups Warm Water
1 1/2 Tbsp yeast
1 Tbsp Honey or Sugar
4 Cups Flour
 1 1/2 tsp Salt
1/8 Cup Olive Oil
Preheat your oven to 450
In the bowl of a mixer mix your yeast, honey, and water. Cover and allow to sit for about 15 minutes, until nice and bubbly.
Now add your flour, and salt, mix using a dough hook (or knead by hand) for about 5 minutes or until nice and smooth.
On a floured cutting board or counter divide the dough in half and shape into 2 loaves.
If you want pretty lines sliced into the top now is the time to do it.
Cover with a dishtowel and let rise for 20 minutes.
Brush the tops of the loaves with olive oil , place on a baking sheet, and bake for 15-20 minutes or nice and golden brown.
Voila!! Fresh bread!! That was easy wasn’t it??
You can also add herbs or cheese or both to this recipe, just add them toward the end of the mixing before separating into loaves. I love to add garlic,or cheddar or Parmesan cheese!

What will you eat with this one hour baguette? I love it with soup!

  1. Yep – that’s not a typo. Most other recipes require a lot more rise time it gives the yeast time to multiply. Since this one is speedy you start with more yeast so it can rise quickly.

  2. This looks amazing!!!!! And doable! I’m always nervous about making bread outside of the bread machine lol. Do you think I could substitute gluten free flour and get a good result?
