Greetings GBBO fans. How good was last night’s episode?! I really think they could’ve made it an hour and a half long; I would’ve loved to have seen more detail in that brilliant showstopper round. If you’re watching – tell me who you’re rooting for! My favourites thus far are Flora (who has the most beautiful Instagram account), Tamal and Sandy.
If you’re not watching the show (why not?!), I apologise – I’m not quiet about my love for it… much to the bemusement of my family members, work colleagues and housemates. I had today off and decided to give the baguettes a go. After last week’s monster of a recipe, let me tell you – it’s so nice to write an ingredients list that’s this short! Flour, yeast, water, salt, oil. Done. Beautiful.
As with all bread, it requires love, patience and an inordinate amount of time scraping bits of dough off your fingers… but it’s so satisfying. Definitely give this one a go!
I’ve taken the recipe straight from the GBBO website.
- 500g bread flour + extra for dusting surfaces
- 10g salt
- 10g instant dried yeast
- 370ml cool water
- olive oil
