Looks good to me, Cookie.  I am sure it goes without saying that it tasted good.

It satisfied everyone, crusty for DH and softer for DD and I.

The bread looks rustic and yummy Cookie. I love olive bread - I have made Dani Valents recipe in the past.

I might find that and give it a try. The olives and Parmesan in it were lovely.

Uni's bread rolls in under an hour.
Made these using Lauke multi grain bread mix. They turned out flat but tasted alright. After rereading Chookies bread tips and hints, I think I know where I went wrong. The last rise was to be 10 minutes but I got distracted and it was about half an hour. The rolls were huge. As soon as I put the wash on top they began sinking. They couldn't hold their shape, the structure wasn't right. Yeast & water to flour ratio? I'm sure someone will tell me if this is the case.

Michele, I think over proving was the problem.  Would need to look at recipe for ratio, but others have used this recipe with success.

Thanks Chookie. I have made these rolls before with success but just using white bread flour not multigrain. Will try again. I'm really enjoying making bread.

Michele, multigrain can take a little more water.

They look fine to me Mich. I always make the hole in mine with the end of a wooden spoon dipped in flour, and I make it quite deep.

Maybe that is the trick. I make my holes with a spurtle (Scottish porridge stirrer). I mighten be making them deep enough. Onwards and upwards.

Michele, your Jam Drops look fine to me.  I used come Quince paste squares in some. My jam ones were very messy but tasted fine.

Whilst appearance helps aesthetically and it is rewarding to see a beautiful end product, it doesn't make any difference at all as soon as it gets bitten and chewed up so, as Cookie says, taste is the important thing.
