I made this again today. I added a heap of seeds towards the end of kneading.

Thanks. The family have decided they like this for everyday now, so the SD starter will be getting refreshed several times a week.

I'll measure it and let you know Judy. I do all my everyday breads in this tin.  It is perfect for Chookie's No Fuss recipe as a loaf and this one too.

I ended up using my biggest tin, it worked a treat.  It was 2.45 when I decided to make this loaf so to help the rising process I put it on the sunny bedroom window ledge for the 2 hrs, forgot to knock it down before putting the dough into the bread tin and placed it in a cold oven with a baking dish of boiling water for 40 mins for the second rise. 

It's a tasty loaf cookie and has such a lovely crunchy crust.

It looks fantastic Judy. I just remembered that you had asked for the size of the tin I use. Do you still need it?

The bread freezes well too.

DH has just mentioned that we need more bread! He has forgotten that I need to give the starter a boot up before I can make the bread. At least it is warmer now and it will rise well this afternoon after I boot up the starter this morning.

This loaf looks great Cookie and Chookie; I must make some more sour dough starter as I let mine die a while back when I couldn't attend it. Chookie do I understand correctly (from your post earlier on) that not letting the dough rise enough can make the sides cave in? Sometimes this happens and I wonder why.

I made this today, using wholemeal bread flour. I added a little more water because of the change of flour.

It made a lovely loaf which I've sliced and placed in the freezer. It sliced really well and I can just tell it will make lovely toast. Great recipe Cookie.

I'm really liking my TMX bread knife with the slicing guide. It's really helping me slice my bread neatly. I love it.

I want one but they sold out really fast. I really struggle to cut bread, which stops me making it so often.
