    Followed this recipe to a T. Twice. Neither time was the dough usable. Waste of flour.

    I couldn’t get mine to rise much. It’s about 2 inches tall. It tastes good and lives up to its name, very crusty. I probably won’t make it again. I had to use mostly all purpose flour and some whole wheat. Did that make it not rise. It always seemed too loose. Disappointed.

    This was my first time making bread (other than pizza dough), and my 9 year old daughter's first time too. It was EASY. On our first attempt we only let it rise for a couple of hours, then one for 2.5 hours, then one for an hour, and one for 15 hours. each one has turned out beautiful and very tasty. the crunch does go away after a day, but the bread makes GREAT toast the next day. We have been thinking that we don't like all the preservatives in our food and this might be our solution. Quick, easy, and super tasty.

    Easy delicious! I didn’t rise overnight.. just 1 hr covered with plastic wrap, and then baked right away. So so crusty and good!

    Abject failure. It’s not the recipe’s fault though. I just couldn’t get my oven to the desired temperature and probably overproof the dough. Oh well, live and learn

    The bread turned out heavier than I expected but the crust was crispy, crunchy, and delicious. The kids all loved it and we already have plans to make it again.

    My first time making bread, i wasn’t familiar with dough & flour so it was really wet I added more flour but never got a ball, baked it anyway and it turned out fine

    Fantastic recipe. I made it 4 times in the past 3 weeks. My wife loves it. Another one to add to my baking arsenal. Great to prep right before bed so when you wake up in the morning, all you need to do is pop it in the oven.

    Great crusty bread. it baked really well, but the flavor is pretty bland. Great vessel for soup, chowder, butter, or cheese. I might add a touch more salt next time and it would be good with a bit of cheese and rosemary as well.

    These were the best baguettes ive ever made, and I’ve been looking for a good recipe for a long time!

    in the process of making it. i'm sure it will turn out ok but I give it 1 star as the name and the time diplayed at the top of the recep. are missleading you to think it's rapid one, just perfect for an unschedueled dinner. when in fact it's an OVERNIGHT 8-12 HOUR REST, NO KNEAD BREAD. I had my ingredients measured out some of them mixed, my yeast already hydrating when I went over to check for any specific tricks and found this out and it was too much of a hassle to discard and start over with a new recep.

    Great Friends like it, and the crunchy crust, toasted. Toasted, the crust is crunchy good. We make it once a week, often twice a week. Got another started, NOW!

    Great. Easy and not nearly as messy as regular bread-making

    It went very well. The crust was nicely crisped and the inside was soft and moist. Very yummy.

    Did as advertised only one I found with regular unbleached flour. The key is in the waiting...made it twice in two days. Here is a double batch for Thanksgiving.
