Made 2 lots of this bread today.  Cookie, looks like a keeper. Thanks.
It is a recipe that fits a different time slot so good if you have to go to the shops after kneading. 2 hours rising.
Cookie, I changed the process a bit. I added everything with warm water to the bowl and kneaded on 37 degrees.also the SD starter wasn't fully activated. I also used an egg wash.
I can't wait to cut it.

Cut this loaf for breakfast toast today.  I REALLY like this loaf. Although it looks like a light loaf, it isn't.but it isn't heavy either.  It has a real chewy character. It is not open texture like SD but has a fairly fine crumb. If you have a SD starter, give this loaf a go. Thanks again Cookie.

Looks like I could have let it rise for another 15 minutes. The edges are more compressed than the Center.  This is because the heat in the oven set the edges while the Center was still rising.

I have another loaf from this book rising at the moment.  It is having troubles as it is freezing here today. I've put it on the oven with bopoiling water to help it along.
This loaf has another name but is the same ingredients with 50g of the flour being replaced by rye flour.

Cookie, will be interested to see how this new loaf turns out.
The last SD loaf that CC made Is a perfect example of how a cut SD should look. Perfect timing.

I didn't cook this loaf until evening as it took a long time to rise. No photo I'm afraid as D H had it cut and in the freezer before I got up. It looks to be pretty good though.  I used 4g of my fresh yeast to make this one and 100g starter. I'll do another one of these and add some spelt and seeds.
