French Bread: BBA Challenge #14

This is it! I'm finally caught up with my BBA posts. I know that Jimmy and Neil will be pleased because they have both been tortured by these posts this week.

I have made the french bread recipe in the Kitchen Aid cookbook that came with my mixer several times and although it is good, this bread was AMAZING. It had that true "french bread" taste and the texture was perfect.

The technique was easy, the biggest challenge for me was shaping the loaves and preserving the air trapped inside. As I mentioned in my previous post I am getting better and handling the dough which is evidenced here with the lovely texture. Yum!
