All My Loves

Just to be like the sun

Chiam tao Luo Ti



I loved bread, there's alot of things, I want to do... Baguette is one of them.
Bought the baguette tray a few years ago, did not use it until now,when I saw Nasi Lemak Lover's blogspot and she happen to have the same tray and the bread looks beautiful, just like store bought. Decide to follow her using the tray and recipe.

I use one and half recipe to do 3 baguettes, For her she used bread flour, I run out of bread flour and I do half bread flour and half plain flour. The baguette turns out beautifully and we loved it.



We eat the baguette with muar otah and chilli crab.

5. Divide the dough into 3 pieces.
6. Roll into balls and let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
7. Press the ball lightly and shape into a long oval, do the same with another ball.( I dusting the worktop with yellow cornmeal too)
8. Use the side of your hand press the center of the dough, and roll again (do it 2-3 times until you get a desired length )
9. Place the shaped dough over a prepared pan.
10. Let the dough rise until almost double in size, about 30 minutes.
11. Preheat the oven 220°C and place a roasting pan in the lowest shelf of the oven.
12. With a very sharp knife, make 3 or 4 diagonal cuts about 1/4 inch deep across top of each loaf. Put the bread into the oven and pour the boiling water into the roasting pan, bake for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack.
