Traditional Baguettes 12/27/2020 - Redux

I could not let stand the poor results of this morning bake. Let's hope the Goddess Fortuna Redux, takes mercy and leads this bake safely home! 

P.S.This is what a 25% increase looks like. I'll be back once the buns are safely on the cooling rack. Smile...

These bad mama-Jama's Are ready to go! Pre-heat, steam, and bake-off! 

Perseverance, determination, commitment, and courage-those things are real. The desire for redemption drives you.
