monday moment: bread
book. i think i've perfected the baguette-this doesn't have the super crispy crust which is fine as that type of crust can be difficult for some people to eat. this batch had a chewy crust and soft center. i like the recipe for the baguette as it only takes 20 minutes for the second rise and 25 minutes to cook. others in the book require a 45-60 minute rise time. with the weather being warm, but mild, i've been letting the bread cool on the deck, and then it'll be ready for slicing. we really love fresh bread at our house and i've been buying lots of flour these days between the bread baking, pizza dough, and Andrew's quest for the perfect biscuit.
