It actually doesn't taste bad. The taste is good. But it's not soft.
My intention was to make French bread from scratch, then make homemade bruschetta with it.
I really should have read the recipe better because it took FOREVER to make! "Let rise 2 hours." "Beat down, let sit 10 mins" "roll out let rise 45 mins" my soul!
Somewhere along the line something happened...or the recipe was wacky (sparing you from it) and the bread was tight, semi hard and dense. Not fluffy and soft :( boo. I'm gonna try it again I think with a different recipe. The bread is eatable, has good flavor, but it's not soft, fluffy fresh baked bread that I hoped for.
