Gluten free, glorious baguettes are now available in your kitchen. I love to whip up a batch of these simple loaves of delight. Our French style baguettes are crusty on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside. Dave loves to pick up a baguette right out of the oven and take a hearty bite into it before the bread even has a chance to cool.
Don’t stop at the loaf! Make crostini, croutons, and breadcrumbs out of this recipe. We make kickin’ garlic Parmesan toasts with baguettes that our family wrestles over.
Make it Easy
A few tips to make simple, gluten free baguettes:
- Invest in a baguette pan. We LOVE our pan and bake with it several times a week.
- Make ahead a batch of Flour Farm Bread Flour Blend. We created a version with dairy and one without using our Flour Farm flour. This do-a-head trick is a real time saver.
- Keep a bottle of homemade oil & water spray handy. All you need to do is add five parts water to one part oil and shake before spraying. We spray this on our bread to prevent drying out, and to help the rise.
- Use a stand mixer to thoroughly blend the dough.

Please read prep note above before you begin, thank you!
Step 1: Dissolve the honey in warm water. Add the yeast and gently stir. Set aside.
Step 2: In a small bowl, add egg whites, oil and vinegar. Whip with a whisk or fork until bubbles form and the surface appears frothy.
Step 3: In the bowl that attaches to the stand up mixer, whisk together the dry ingredients. Attach the bowl to the mixer and turn the machine on low.
Step 4: With the mixer on low, pour in the egg mix. Follow with the yeast mix. Turn the mixer to medium-high and blend for 1 minute.
Step 5: Turn the mixer off and spoon the dough into wells of a prepared baguette pan. Try to make each baguette the same size and length. You may either use a spatula or your hands to smooth down the dough with water or the oil and water mixture.
Step 6: Score the dough and allow it to rise for 20 minutes.
Step 7: Place the pan in the center of the preheated oven. To produce steam, pour one cup of water into the shallow oven proof pan that sits on the bottom rack. Quickly close the oven door and set the timer for 20 minutes. The baguettes take about 25 minutes to bake. I set the timer for 20 minutes to check for browning. If baguettes are browning too quickly, tent the pan with foil and continue to cook for another 5-7 minutes. A digital read thermometer should register above 200 degrees F/93 C.
Step 8: Remove pan from the oven and place on a cooling rack for about 5 minutes. Transfer baguettes to the rack to continue cooling before storing.
Enjoy within two days or freeze for up to a month.
To store: The crust of baguettes softens if stored on the counter in a plastic bag or airtight container. We store our bread in either a brown paper bag, or a beeswax coated cloth. To freeze, use a freezer safe container or bag.
Parmesan Bread: Add 1/2 C (about 47g or 1.7 oz) grated Parmesan to the dry mix. Top the loaf with extra cheese if desired before rising. For a complete description, click on this link.
