I Thought I'd Bake Some Bread Today
The weather's been chilly, wet and dreary this week. I wanted a warming soup for dinner. For us, a soup meal calls for a baguette. I had that cookbook of Ratios, and thought I'd try the baguette recipe. It sounded easy and quick so I decided to give it a go. It's a quicker, simpler version than the one in Reinhart's Bread Baker's Apprentice which calls for a two-day process.
The recipe produced a much bigger loaf than I expected from a baguette recipe. I guess I should have made it four feet long!
Here are the results. I have to say we both thought it came out pretty good.
