Baguette didn't turn out!
Hello everyone! I am a very new baker. I love to make bread and have made sweet bean filled buns (adzuki bread) many times. They are really good, but I find when it comes to other breads I have trouble. I don't know when to stop mixing. The dough looks smooth and shiny but the gluten window test doesn't work. I am trying to move on to making a simple baguette.Bread flour 200gSalt 4gSugar 3gYeast 2gWater 130g Baked 20 minutes at 485 degrees on an oven sheet and parchment paper in the middle of the oven. I used this recipe and while it wasn't a complete disaster, the bread was obviously not a good baguette.The crust was black on the top, while the bottom had a nice yellow crust. Also, the crumb was slightly gummy.It tasted alright, surprisingly edible. If anyone has tips for my revenge, please let me know :)
