Baguette










A bread that I always find it the most challenging to make. But I am suppose, I have done whatever I could to achieve this result. The truly good ones are made by bakers who are trained for bread making for ages before they make the most delicious Baguettes. Same as making croissants. Not something we could make it from scratch by just one or two times attempts just following the recipe books. Baguette is a bread that made of the simplest ingredients you can find in your kitchen. Basically just flour, yeast, water and salt! And of course those in the recipes I have needed a small amount of malt candy. It suppose baguette that crispy skin. This time, I used the French bread flour called in the recipe, which I think it'd give the texture and aroma a little boost. Other than that it's just the normal steps of making a basic loaf.
