French bread ... sort of ...

 I used this recipe for French Bread from Our Old Homestead.  I used the same recipe but because I used a mixer and didn't mix by hand, it sort of went a bit differently.
 I was very happy with how the dough rose the first time. Wow!
 These are the loaves rising for the second time in my just warm oven ( for 35 mins) ... I think I should have just baked them after 15 minutes (in a hot oven) as when they rose the 2nd time they lost all of their shape...
 Two good loaves...
This is the plait loaf and it looks more like a Turkish Pide bread ...  All still edible, just not quite
French stick material!  I will perfect this is coming weeks... once we eat our way through all this bread!
Cheers - Joolz  xx
