Happy Sunday! I love baking and was in the mood in making French baquettes. I've never made bread before and had to watch some videos online on how to make French baquettes/bread. It wasn't hard at all, so I woke up bright and early this Sunday morning to try it out. All you need is bread flour, salt, yeast, and warm water. With the help of my new Kitchen Aid stand mixer and dough hook, it made making bread simple!
Here are some pictures that were taken during the making and baking process. Happy baking!

Lastly, made extra little baquettes for sandwiches/subs.
Et voila! Fresh out of the oven.
