French baguettes in a jiffy

Well, I kind of screwed up today, but did my best to make up for it.  When I was making the Gluten-free Farmhouse bread earlier, i prepared too much yeast because I thought I really messed up the bread dough, but it turned out that I didn't!  As a result, I quickly found the most simple recipe for yeasted French bread and threw it together in minutes and baked it this afternoon.  It was really good!  My husband liked the crust.  I could have done a much better job on the shaping, however.  I'll do better next time.

The crumb was OK.  I always prefer to use my sourdough starter for bread, but this was a nice change.  I've included the link to the recipe below.

of the Francoise eat every day - down from 80% a decade ago.  Looks fantastic and if you have to make a fast yeast bread - this is the one to make because it is delicipous for a day and you can practice your scoring too!   Lucy calls them slash bags:-)

Happy Baking
