The February Daring Baker Challenge

It is time again to post our monthly Daring Baker Challenge. I got to express that this month’s challenge is rather tough as it is a 15 pages recipe. This month is hosted by Breadchick Mary from The Sour Dough and Sara from I Like to Cook and the recipe is from Julia Child’s French Bread. Click to view the recipe

After trying out this recipe, I realise that baking french bread can be very exciting and for now I had learned something new, useful and so desirable but by the end of the day I was totally exhausted! . . . . Love Sunny Yaw

    This was an exhausting challenge but at the end of the day we learned something new, and I made baguettes so I could have some bread fresh from the oven.

    Your loaves look really terrific! And it will be much easier the next time you make it because you shouldn’t have to read the recipe. That took most of the time.
