Bernard Clayton's Pain de Campagne Honfleur

It's a bit ugly and my wheat stalks look more like baseball bats,  but it's not shabby for a first crack at them.  Should taste great with the honey etc.

Nice work. How was the flavour?

Thanks! The flavor is great.  My 10 year old loves it. And she doesn't pull any punches.

That is my "go-to" bread. I make it nearly every week because it's BIG and it goes with savory or sweet flavors.

It has taken me the longest time to get it how I want it. I've got a loaf of it proofing in the fridge tonight. I have my fingers crossed that it turned out as well as last time.  For me, for a commercial yeast bread, it's pretty good and has that sourdough feel. 

You did a great job and kudos to you for attempting to make the top decoration. I am tooooo lazy for that. :-)

This is the loaf I did last week.

Thanks! I appreciate it!  I think I could get those wheat stalks right after 50 more tries.  Hehe!
