Crisp and light, with a crackly brown crust, these baguettes are super-easy to make.

Ingredients

cups lukewarm water
2 cups sourdough starter, about the consistency of thick pancake batter; fed, or unfed*
4½ to 5 cups Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon instant yeast
4 teaspoons vital wheat gluten
1 egg yolk lightly beaten with 1 tablespoon water, for glaze; optional
Pizza seasoning, sesame seeds, artisan bread topping, or anything else you think might be good; all optional
If you feed your sourdough before using, the loaves will rise better; but if you're in a hurry, unfed sourdough will simply lend its flavor, while the yeast in the recipe takes care of the rise.
