I'm awake and getting ready to leave
for the airport after a
very quick piece of toast with my
steaming mug of black coffee.
I'm just betting that you, like me, always have time for a great French baguette? Still warm from a boulangerie in France is the best....................however this is a great one to pick up when you're thousands of miles and an ocean away from the real thing!
This is the partially baked Archer Farms baguette from Target and I think it's excellent. I discovered it some months ago and usually buy two, one to bake that evening and one for the freezer. Just 8-10 minutes in the oven for a crunchy crust and a nice slightly chewy interior.
Leftovers are good for morning toast, or a quick lunch when put under the grill with a slice of cheese to melt in all gooey and delicious!
Have you ever baked your own French style baguettes? Do you do any bread baking from scratch or using a mix and a machine? If so tips for those of us who are frustrated bakers would be so appreciated.
