Poppyseed Crusted Yorkville Sourdough Baguettes
I’m closing the year out by baking these baguettes. I spent a good part of the summer and into fall learning how to bake baguettes with a ton of help from Alan, Don, Doc and Danny and I’d like to thank them for helping me to learn how to make these. I doubt I would even have tried had it not been for their prodding and the Community Bake.
The details of my formula are In this link.
My newly vigorous starter is playing havoc with my timings so I think these went a bit over and so I didn’t get ears. On the other hand, it could just be that I’m rusty with scoring and need more practice. I also didn’t do one step that makes scoring easier, the final cold proof after shaping and before scoring. The dough was proofing so quickly that I didn’t want to chance it getting even further away from me by giving it some fridge time.
