One dough of bread 2 kinds of baguette: Fruit and nut baguette, Chocolate chips baguette

Bread baking is one of my life pleasure, if you ever bake bread by yourself you will agree with me ^^. Watching the simple ingredients turn into something delicious with your own hands, it's magic.

This time, I think it's double magic, hehe, because you make only one dough of baguette and turn it into 2 kinds of it ^^.  - Fruit and nut baguette  and  Chocolate chips baguette -
I know that if you look at the recipe you can see that it's not traditional, it has both egg and milk the ingredient list too, but do you really mind about it if it's delicious, haha.
The original recipe come from: ....................
The thing that catch my attention is with only one basic recipe, and a little bit of twist in the ingredients, she can turn it into 9 kinds of baguette, sounds good!
I choose to make 2 kinds of it today, actually because I saw that there are egg and milk in the dough, I can expect the bread too be softer than the traditional recipe too.
And I'm right ^^, my family really enjoy the bread when it just comes out of the oven, soft on the inside and a bit chewy on outside, "Delicious!", this is what my sister say.
Serve warm with a cup of coffee, it will be another great morning for you.
