I stink at baking. No, really. I’ve never made homemade bread or cake or anything yummy like that. Not since, as a child, I helped my mother in the kitchen, that is. Too much measuring, too precise, no creativity involved. I’m just not a rule follower that way!
So, what does a non-baker do when that aroma, that fresh, warm, baked deliciousness is needed?
Sturdiwheat baking mixes to the rescue!
The instructions are clear on the package. Just add water—both to the mix, and to the included little yeast packet that was very simple to use.
Mine were a bit lumpy, but still delicious!
Voila! Warm and delicious baguettes!
Since we are empty nesters, we ate one (yes, we ate the whole thing!) and froze one. A few weeks later, we popped the frozen second baguette into a 300 degree oven for a while, and it thawed and warmed up just beautifully.
For our next baguette adventure, we plan to make double the recipe (two packages), freeze several (maybe even make 3 smaller loaves instead of the 2 medium ones per package), and take them, frozen, camping. I can’t wait to smell the fresh bread aroma as we warm them up around the campfire!
And, I have purchased the Galette Mix and the Chocolate Mint Bundt Cake Mix to have on hand the next time I’m invited to a potluck. I have high hopes the quality will exceed my normal chips and salsa (remember . . . I don’t bake)! Not without Sturdiwheat, that is!
NOTE FROM STURDIWHEAT: Thanks, Jennifer. You’re now a baker—a Sturdiwheat baker, that is! Oh, and all of these baked goods are simply delicious with Sturdiwheat Coffee.
