In my attempts to perfect the sourdough loaf, I am continually baking. My latest attempt:
another 5-grain sourdough loaf. This time, it ended up extremely wet and sticky, so I ended up adding a lot of extra flour. Result: a very very large loaf.
The finished product. It ended up being pretty big around, but not very tall. Probably due to the long rise, all the "oomph" had been taken out of the starter (plus, by the time it got around to baking, the flour to starter ratio was way off)
Up close, you can see the sunflower seeds embedded in the dough.
First slice. Good looking crumb. Very tasty, too.
How big was this loaf, do you ask?
It was biiiiiiig.
