Wholewheat Baguette Fun

This afternoon I figured why not take advantage of the heat bread will rise really well. I had also posted a question on the chow and chatter facebook page about your favorite food smells in the morning, mine was bread so I was destined to fill my kitchen with the smell of bread baking today!

 It had been a long time since I had made bread and I am always looking for fun toddler activities to avoid the afternoon heat, way too hot for this pregnant lady!

The following is a pictorial post of bread making fun with a toddler, and a link to the recipe the only change I made was to do 1/4 wholewheat flour. 

Here's a link to the recipe the first time I made it Homemade French Baguette

  2. I see great texture in your bread. Yum! You must been getting lots of assistance from your brilliant little baker.

  3. Great job mommy and Jasmine!! What a good idea to make some bread today :)

  4. How cute is she!
    I have to agree with you, the smell of freshly baked bread in the morning is amazing!

  5. I always have fun making bread but making it with an adorable toddler seems like even more fun!

  6. How ironic. I attempted to make bagels today w/my 4 yr old. Sadly, they didn't turn out as well as your baguette. This was my 1st bagel experiment. The dough was too wet, which yield ugly, dense bagels. I won't give up, though. Like you, I love the smell of a yeast bread. Actually... I love any smell of any type of dough thing ;-)

  7. Maris and a couple of slices for you
