Kat and Paul have been watching BBC’s Bake Off and decided they would have a go at making baguettes. I came home on Saturday to the delicious smell of baking bread and a kitchen covered in floury fingerprints. Paul had even made a contraption to help mould the dough into baguette shapes while it was proving.
Today Paul surprised me again by presenting me with freshly baked croissants. He cheated this time though and bought the frozen pre-made dough from the local deli. Tomorrow it’s going to be chocolatinas!
I need to get those pedals back on my bike so I can start cycling the calories off!
Oh my, a husband who bakes bread! He's a keeper! -JennReplyDelete
I might keep him if he plays his cards right.Delete
Can I borrow him sometime please?ReplyDelete
I'll send him over Pat!Delete
I'm always happy to eat freshly baked bread.Delete
That is how to turn a house into a home! My husband barely knows where to find the oven; he is pretty good at eating my baked goods, though, so I'll keep him on.ReplyDelete
Fresh baking always makes a house smell good.Delete
Love baguettes, I should try making them.ReplyDelete
He used a breadmaker to mix the dough, proved them twice and then baked them in the oven. Steam in the oven was the secret for a crusty crust.Delete
You do a lot of eating.ReplyDelete
I love my food, always have.Delete
Sandrine (Frayssinet baker) says he can have a job any day.ReplyDelete
I'm sure Paul would like that!Delete
You have got Paul well trained. Does he also run for sticks?ReplyDelete
Only when he's in a good mood.Delete
