Batard

Batard

Jeers at this bread’s name are not unwarranted. As the “illegitimate brother” to the baguette, this shorter, stubbier French classic is made from the baguette dough but left to rise overnight for a crisper, darker, more flavorful crust, with a higher ratio of crumb to crust. Though slightly in its sibling’s shadow, this version is the perfect bread for bruschetta or h’ordeuvres.

Ingredients: Unbleached unbromated wheat flour, water, salt, and yeast
