1. In a medium bowl, add all the ingredient (except water) and mix evenly. Pour water and mix with a spatula to make a soft dough. Cover and let rest for 15 min. Remove the cover and knead the dough a few times with a spatula. Cover and let rest for 15 minutes again. Remove the cover and knead the dough (with a spatula) a few more times. The dough will be elastic, soft and smooth, even a bit airy. Keep it like that. Finally cover and let rise in a warm place for a few hours or until it doubles in size.
2. Coat the work surface with a bit of flour, then put the dough on it. Split the dough in half. Cover and let them rest about 10 to 15 minutes.
3. Then fold both ends over the center. With the seam side down, roll the dough into a 30~35 cm long slender loaf. You can hold it vertically to help stretch it into shape too.
4. Transfer the baguette to a lightly floured cloth, seam side down to rest. Lift up the cloth between the 2 baguettes into a pleat to help the dough hold its shape. Let it rise for about 40min in a warm place or until it about doubles in size (the volume increase actually depends on the temperature).
5. Pre-heat the oven to 240℃ degree.
6. Once the baguettes have risen, gently transfer them onto a parchment-lined baking sheet (seam side down). Slash cut each baguette 3 or 4 times along its length on the diagonal, using a baker's lame, razor blade or a very sharp knife.
7. Mist lightly with water and put the baguette into the oven. Bake for about 15 minutes. Let it cool on a wire rack.
