I can manage bread that comes from a batter like pumpkin, banana, or beer bread because you can just as easily make them into muffins. For some reason though, I can’t pull off a simple and classic homemade loaf of bread.
I scoured the web for different tips and techniques and I’d give myself a B+ on my first attempt at French baguettes. The outside was crisp and the inside soft and fluffy like they should be, but their appearance could use some help. This is possibly what a baguette made by a 4 year old French child might look like, but hey.. not too shabby for an American’s first try!
I think the best part was the smell of fresh baked bread permeating the entire house! Why doesn’t Yankee Candle make that into a scent?! Never mind.. they probably already have. My only disappointment with this venture was that I wanted to bake two more, but ran out of flour! As always I created an easy step-by-step tutorial and included a few tips of my own to help you in your own bread baking experiences!
