Over at catsandcasseroles there is a great recipe for baguettes. I even made a mistake with the recipe and put an egg yolk and 1T water INTO the machine along with the other ingredients....it came out wonderful. We couldn't wait 12 hours for it to Age and ate half a loaf after 3 hours. I did leave it overnight on a rack (covered with dish cloth) and it's even better today. That created the crunchy crust. Try it, I think you will like it.
