I am not reaching my goal yet … baguette yes..yes… baguette…

20 May

I love my baguettes, but I am not happy with the crumb yet..  Few years ago, I saw a beautiful cell structure in the crumb, just beautiful..  I was speechless at the moment, then just staring at the baguette for a long time.   I felt like the baguette was made like a croissant.  I don’t know if I can get the perfect crumb structure…sigh…..

Yesterday’s baguette was fine…  The taste – great,  the crust- good,  the oven spring-  better than ever ( A big progress)… and the crumb structure – okay…



This iron pan with bricks works great for creating steam in my weak oven.


I could slice only one baguette, the rest of them were taken.

I hope tomorrow’s baguettes are better….

Happy baking!


My favorite baking tool:  I strongly recommend this bread knife. I have been using for over 7 years.

    Hi Akiko! Teresa G. is Northwest Sourdough. She has been around since The Fresh Loaf and used to post there 🙂 On Facebook Perfect Sourdough there are so many inspiring bakers you just want to dig in and try them all lol I am not too familiar with my camera so I don’t post.
    Another inspiring group on Facebook is Fermenting and Baking with YW administrator Pilar Torres. It has sparked my interest again in YW & so much fun to experiment with ingredients.
    To answer your Q Akiko, no, I havent tried any of her online courses simply being I live in Canadian Rockies and our flour and altitude is different. Wheew! That was a long winded reply sorry 🙂
    Have a wonderful day Akiko!
