80% hydration baguette with preferment

08 May

Again, I realized how hard to shape and score high hydration baguettes.  It was little struggling..  The recipe is here. although, I changed little bit. I will show you how when I complete.

I also think that I need a new oven for that unfortunately.  My weak oven can’t create nice oven spring for baguettes.  😦   I am losing a hope now.



Although I like their crumb and the taste of the baguettes, of course. The crust was thinner than the 70% hydration baguettes. The taste was sweeter, and some how juicier slightly.



Now, I am making 74% hydration baguettes.  We shall see!

Happy baking,


Shopping tip:
My favorite instant yeast: Saf-instant yeast. If you are sensitive to the brewer smell, I strongly recommend this yeast.
Saf Instant Yeast, 1 Pound Pouch
