Todays Bake

A variation on a Tartine formula......

Decided to try my hand at a Baguette, even though I have never really had much luck with them. 

Not bad, but my scoring need work.....

Good taste and a pretty good crumb too....

I think my Baguette dough was a little to wet, better luck next time.

Cheers,

Wingnut

you sure turned out some fine bread today:-)  Nice baking.  Love the blisters on that boule.  The crumb on the baguette had to be good too after seeing the outside- otherwise there are no bread gods!

Happy Baking

Wow...that's baguette looks like a snake that keeps growing.  How big is that crusty goodness?

Both your breads look great.

Scoring will come with practice.  For baguettes if they are wet it can be difficult to score, but your don't look too bad.  Nice crumb and crust though.

Regards,
Ian

Baguette was right around 16", I think next time I think I will make it a bit skinnier. 

Crumb was just like the other loaves, crispy outside soft and chew-ish on the inside.

Thanks for all the kind words everyone.

Cheers,
