Those look lovely. I used to make Kaiser Rolls a lot...I loved shaping them. I almost bought the tool to do that, but liked doing it by hand.

Went to drop stuff at the consignment auctioneer place--car died and I couldn't clear the security warning--luckily, a couple of guys pushed it onto the shoulder and one guy called his wife to drive me back to my Dad's. What a hassle, we got the car back, but don't know if it will get Dad back from town tomorrow. Then a friend contacted me and let me know she has had to make the decision to take her husband off life support, another friend's son who is in end stage cancer is, well, not doing well...the countdown has begun. So I didn't feel like baking. What started as a good day, turned out to be a really crappy day.

I assume since the dough is in the fridge, I can finish the bagels in the morning.

Shaped by hand. Can't find picture of sliced roll. Sorry.

Had intended to make some sticky cinnamon buns but we got up too late to start the process. Guess they'll have to wait until tomorow. I'll assemble all the ingredients today so I can come out of the chute running.

Finished. LOVE the texture, the chew, and the flavor. Next time, I will make them 100 g instead of 50 g.

Do NOT put any oil or grease on those pans. If you put oil or grease, as French bread is cooked at very high temperature s (500), the grease will burn and it will be very hard to wash off.

Those pans are no stick and the finish bread should come off easily. If needed, put some flour around your French bread, before the final rise, as a no stick ingredient, the flour will be easy to wash, plus your bread will look more rustic.

Here is a video on making French Bread I have made.

This video is still in private mode, as it is at the end of my queue, schedule to be published in early May.

Enjoy, and all feedback are extremely welcome, even the very critical one.

For Canadian DCers, with the railcars not running, the wheat can't get to the mills. Couple that with 42% of the wheat was left in the ground, might be able to harvest in the Spring--the forecast is that flour prices are going to go up because of the trains not running. Also, 1/3 of the sugar beet harvest was left in the fields in ND. Crystal Sugar is laying off people starting in March because the plants are running out of beets to process. Sugar will most likely go up if you buy Crystal Sugar. Sigh. Of course, with flour prices on the rise, pasta prices will also go up in Canada.

I just finished baking my two loaves of sourdough bread, around 12:30 am! Hard to tell how those kind are going to make you wait.

I made blueberry cobbler. I was wishing I had more berries than the two cups in the fridge. Baked the cobbler and cooled it a bit, then went for ice cream from the freezer... where I spotted the bag of Wyman blueberries my SIL gave me before they moved to NC. *facepalm*
