Here is my try with the French Bread from the BBA book!
I think I had it on too low of a rack. The tops didn't brown as nice as I think they should have. It did register the 205°!
The chew and crunch of the crust is nice and the crumb is very tasty.
I've got a feeling this will be it until I get back from vacationing!
Don't cry, no there is no "S"! I think I've had enough of "S"s! LOL!
Happy Summer to you all!
Beautiful scoring and crumb! The loaves are wonderful.ReplyDelete
I will miss you while you're on vacation. Have fun!:-)
Thanks, it was a fun one to do.
AH geesh thanks Oggi. I'll miss you too.
What! Tired of Ss, never. No doubt you'll surprise us with a later one ;)ReplyDelete
You are rolling on these.
Just can't think of anymore "S" things and I forgot this time. Too much of a hurry. :)
Nice looking loaves! I love to make French bread: it's so simple and satisfying. It always makes me think, "This is what homemade bread should be."ReplyDelete
Have a nice vacation!
:) Thanks! It sure is tasty.
Thanks I'll miss all of you.
Beautiful crumb on that French Bread!ReplyDelete
Thanks! It is a nice tasty chewy bread. :)
Boy, you are fast! Working on #8, I believe. Need to post the ciabatta.ReplyDelete
You are speedy, and doing a great job!
We have had a lot of cool weather to bake with so I've been taking advantage of it. :)
Have fun and I'll be watching for your Ciabatta.
I think your crumb is wonderful! And yes... we're going to miss you when you're gone. Hurry home, OK?ReplyDelete
Wow, you are so far ahead! Your french bread looks lovely!ReplyDelete
:) Thanks Mags.ReplyDelete
Hurry home? Now why would I do that. LOL.
Have a great rest of your summer. :)
I 'have' to get ahead! I'll be missing 'all' of August. :)
I've made the French baguette yesterday. Nice crusty on the outside and dense in the middle without any big holes. Lack in salt. We liked them but they were not rated 10/10. Hope someday to find a baguette recipe that makes big holes in the center. Yours look really nice.ReplyDelete
Thanks Helene. I didn't get holes but taste is most important and this was real tasty.ReplyDelete
Your loaves look fantastic!ReplyDelete
Thanks Heather. :)ReplyDelete
Mmm, I love French bread, and yours looks great. I haven't actually tried baking it, though--the recipes usually scare me a bit. I'm looking forward to trying it though, since PR's directions are always so good.ReplyDelete
