My thoughts
One again I have no idea why I was so afriad. I was beyond happy when this came out od the oven. I looked like bread, it sounded like bread when I tapped it and most of all it tasted like bread. It was crusty like a baguette and the inside was the perfect texture. I tried it with a great smear of butter and on my sandwhiches and enjoyed it. I already want to make another one. I hope you can find yeast as it’s a hot commodity right now.
