I haven't made this particular loaf, but I had no luck when I made bread with a lid on the tin. First, the bread stuck to the lid, even though I greased it, then it was doughy and heavy. Maybe too much dough for the tin size. The lid didn't fit the tin properly as I bought it separately and it was meant for the black tins - mine is silver.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

This is a very nice loaf.   I cooked it without a lid.    To prevent the loaf sticking to the lid,  spread rolled oats or sesame seeds generously over the top of the dough before putting the lid on.

Good tip Chookie.  From memory it is two 450g chunks of dough in a 680g tin to make with the lid.

I never find it sticks if I really grease it well with oil/butter.

Made this today with few changes.
Got a very tasty loaf that didn't quite rise as expected.
Yummy crunchy crust.

Used 400 g strong plain bread flour, 50 g wheatgerm, 50g wholemeal, 100g Rye flour.
Added tiny bit of honey and molasses ( 1/2 tsp each)

Very sticky, rolled in oats and toasted  rye before putting in tins. Used scrapers. Did two rises.

Will have to rethink this one.

Here it is before proofing.



And here it is baked and sliced

May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Well thanks very much for the kind comments however it was disappointing to me in rise and texture although flavour was good.
I feel I have done much better today please see the post in the sour cream loaf thread for a far superior loaf.  :D
