    Dear Beth,
    Thank you for sharing your Vietnamese Baguette recipe. However, you didn’t show in detail how to successfully bake them. To get those beautifully baked baguettes, there’s NO WAY to bake them at either 450°F or 475°F for entirely 25 minutes. Baking temperatures are critical for Vietnamese Baguette. My understanding is that baguette needs steam in oven for optimal oven spring. How did you create steam in your oven? Is there any reasons why you didn’t show your oven when you placed the dough in it like you usually did in other recipes?
    Again, thank you for sharing your Vietnamese Baguette recipe, but I do believe your fans won’t be able to get the same results like yours.

      Hi Trish, thank you for watching my video! There are many Vietnamese baguette recipes available out there and every recipe have its own unique way, just like how I show in my video. My baguette doesn’t need any steam when baking. Bake the baguette at 450 or 475°F for 20-23 mins and using a baguette pan, which is one of the reason my baguette looks so good. The only reason why I didn’t show the inside of my oven and cutting to show the inside of the bread is because this was one of my first YouTube video and I didn’t have enough experience of how to record or edit my video. There are many people successfully making this bread with my recipe. I’m not saying you will be successful with my Vietnamese baguette recipe in your first try. It’s took me so much time and effort to make one video and I do not plan to use that effort to make people fail. I do hope you will trust my honest effort of sharing with you my recipes.
