Nowadays though, thanks to the invention of ‘part-baked’ bread, we can appreciate just why the French love their baguettes so much.
Although baguettes are generally made with white flour, here in the UK, many of us have developed a penchant for seeded breads. So, as a variation to the white flour baguette, Sainsbury’s have introduced a stonebaked seeded, 'bake-at-home' baguette.
Overall, you can’t help but feel this is a healthier baguette than one made with regular white flour. However, since it’s bread, it’s not low in calories, with each half baguette worth 324 calories (before adding any butter). But one 250g baguette is sufficient to serve four people when accompanied with a bowl of nutritious and filling soup.

Cooking it couldn’t be easier. Just take off the packaging and cook from frozen for 10-12 minutes or from ambient for 8-10 minutes. You can store these baguettes in their unbaked state for a few weeks in a cupboard or you can keep them in the freezer until you’re ready to bake.
