The iconic French baguette focuses on aesthetics as well as sensory delight. While long and slim, a quality French baguette must retain a rigid structure. The interior must be soft and chewy, unlike its surface, which carries most of the overall structural tension. In terms of taste, the classic French baguette browned on the surface, but not so much as to overpower the yeasty and surprisingly savory interior.
If baked further with a layer of sauce and butter, as in the classic French garlic bread, the airy interior must firm up to create a fantastic crunch that is neither too brittle nor too hard to bite through. Creating the baguette with traditional methods would produce this excellent quality, but there is another way to recreate such quality, which will also save your precious time and energy in the kitchen.

What is inside Apito Baguette Mix?
Pure wheat flour takes up the majority of the product weight, followed by minute amounts of salt, permitted emulsifier (E472) and flour improver (E300). Emulsifiers and improvers are industry standards that help to create firm loaves that do not easily crumble, especially for buttery types of baguettes. Malt flour and enzymes optimize yeast activity, allowing faster proofing and better leavening — this is crucial to create a stable airy interior texture.
How would your bread develop in the oven with Apito Baguette Mix?
At 240ºC, your baguette would develop a golden-brown crust that hardens, while also revealing a ‘middle’ layer from the cuts. These take a firm texture, but are not as hard as the surface crust. You may think of it as the ‘outer part’ of the interior. The decorative leaf-like cuts are the second mark of quality that is visually appealing to customers. If you use an inferior quality flour, it may not develop a rich texture, instead, you will be left with a crumbly one or even a rough tear that runs deep into the interior, which does not look appealing.
