|I received a lame from Breadtopia for mother's day. Really can't say enough about how wonderful this tool is! It improved my slashing by a zillion percent! Every slash I have done since receiving this has turned out wonderfully!|
|The crumb turned out nice for sandwich type bread. Only complaint I have with this bread is that it was to sweet, which is probably because I am so used to lean breads that I am simply not used to sugar in them!|
|I had to slip these in, basically these are loaves of BBA Casatiello that I made into a baguette shape. I wanted the slices to be more like a snack for my meetings this week. Hope this works out ok! I just used a different shape, but the same recipe.|
|After the 2 hour rise, I shaped it into baguettes and allowed them to proof for an hour. I then slashed them with my lame, and baked them like I would a baguette. They turned out really nice, if a little bit to sweet for me.|
