Autolysis Baguette

France - A tasty baguette thanks to autolysis

By limiting the oxidation of the dough, the autolysis process preserves the taste of the bread. The dough (flour + water) is left to stand at the end of the mixing or after being kneaded for a few minutes. This makes the dough smoother and stretchier. The other ingredients (salt, yeast) are added after autolysis.
