Blasphemy, I know what the Baguette Brigade will say about these, Blapshemy!!! Oh well, I do not care. I was in the mood to do something with chocolate and had started the mix for these Bouabsa baguettes. I added 100 g of Lindt 70% dark chocolate which is always a good pick me up. I’m not sure I’ve seen anyone add chocolate to their baguettes, but I have to admit I haven’t done a search. In all likelihood it isn’t an original idea. The chocolate was added at the first fold for which I did a strong bench letterfold and threw the chocolate in as if it was a lamination.
I usually do only 2 coil folds and no French folds for my baguettes, however, for this set I did the letterfold and then two coil folds.
The kitchen smells like chocolate cake right now and I can’t wait until one of these cools off to slice it open.
