Baguettes/Rolls -Photo

J.H. Bread Book recipe for Baguettes with Poolish.  I made a morning poolish and baked this evening baguettes and rolls.  I used KA AP flour.  The Baguettes were so light and the rolls are delicious!


  



These rolls are great alone or for sandwiches..so light!



Recipe made 3 small, medium and large Baguettes and half dozen medium Rolls.

Thank you David, I have been craving some rolls!  Hoagie style Italian rolls sound really tasty.  I wish I would have made more rolls and less baguettes!!

Those look just like the ones I used to get from an 'artisan boulanger' in my neighboorhood in Paris. I am sure they taste as good (or even better).

Thank you alconnell, first time I made rolls with this recipe!  But won't be my last !


It's fun to make rolls...they are sure a lot easier to shape than Baguettes!  Maybe it will encourage others to try some Baguette recipes!

Hi Kathy, I apologize!  David does have some lovely photos and discription on his blog of Hammelman's Baguettes with a poolish.  But the recipe is very involved in his book...'Bread' by Jeffrey Hammelman.  If you would still like the recipe I can e-mail you a copy.  I have sent you a message with my e-mail address.

Hi, Kathy. 


Sorry for the delayed response. I've been out of town, playing with granddaughters. To help you understand my lack of remorse:




 


Anyway, I couldn't find where I had posted the formula for Hamelman's poolish baguettes, but here's a link to the formula posted by another member:

Enjoy!

I guess it tastes as good as it looks. Made me feel stupid as well, why did I think of that before? Baquette rolls? I will put them on my BTD (bread to do) list. And I should buy some books about breadbaking as well.


I guess the rolls are finished by now... cheers, Jw.

Hi Jw,  There are some wonderful bread books out there!  I highly recommend Jeffrey Hammelman's BREAD book!  I liked using his recipe because the crumb works nicely for rolls.

Dan, Thank you very much for the very nice compliment...'blush' :)  I know my baguettes look more like batards.  These were baked under the injection steamer and fitting 3 little fat ones fit better still leaving enough dough for a second bake...that was why I chose to try the rolls...it wasn't really planned I just decided I could also use the rolls.  I think that under the steamer/injector lid I can get some very thin crusts because I can count how many seconds to inject the steam.
