Soft French bread (midwest.social)

Still pretty new to bread making. I think I needed to add a little more flour and next time I won’t egg wash the slits I cut. But it’s tasty!

Pro tip - egg wash first, THEN cut slits.

Excellent tip, I will definitely do that next time

I think it looks good. Was this a miche?

What does the crumb look like? Tight like a sandwich loaf, or open like sourdough?

I like egg washes, not for everything , but they are great for some loaves. It looks nice on this one and probably kept the interior soft.

Thanks! It looks flatter than the recipe photo which is why I’m wondering if I used enough flour. I had to look up a miche and I don’t think mine is. It was made with all-purpose flour and SAF yeast, and I didn’t do a preferment or long rest with it.

Here’s the crumb:

That looks great to me as a sandwich loaf, even better (personal preference) lightly toasted. Congrats

Toast is what I had in mind. Now that you said sandwich loaf I wonder how it would be as a grilled cheese.
