Gratitude Monday -- Proper Pan Edition

I have a real baguette pan. It was my birthday gift to me. It arrived the day after my birthday and just a few hours after making a test loaf of French bread to determine how much psyllium fiber to use.
For that loaf I used cornflour, Robin Hood GF Flour, and coconut flour so tried five tablespoons.
It went well.
The next day I tried out the new pan swapping the cornflour for almond flour. It is very good. It wasn't quite as dry a dough as the first, but still worked really well.
As you can see it grew a bit and drooped over a pan edge.
I don't care.
I have a proper French bread pan and for it I am grateful.

The photo is of that very first batch of French bread from the new pan.

Having the right pan is so satisfying. I have never made baguettes and never will--a dedicated roll person--but I know the feeling.

The right pan makes everything easier, and your loaves look delicious.

It sure is, Mary Anne.

That's exactly it, Messymimi. And they are. I am so pleased I found a good gf flour.
