Two worked just fine. Maybe I'll try a half and half wholemeal and plain bakers flour next and see what happens

Love this recipe.  I sometimes make 3 bread sticks from the basic recipe.
SS yours looks very good.

Haven't cut it yet. Looks very rustic to say the least. Have read all the comments about slashing.

When you cook this recipe in a bread tin, do you still need to do the folds?

I think the folds are just to shape it Mich.

Michele, l like the rustic look. Great loaf.  I donít do the folds.  I just treat it like all my bread.  Makes lovely bread sticks, 3. It is the proportions  of yeast to water to flour that make it special. This is not one that I muck about with, just make to the recipe. 
If I want to add some seeds or grain , I use the No Fuss recipe.  Usually replace 100 grams of what ever.
To get a round loaf, stretch the dough over the top by pulling the sides down and under. Pinch together underneath. Play around with it.
