One man's battle with the mysteries of sourdough bread
LoL - lucky swans!
Hi Mal, I just found your comment on my blog hiding in spam and have left you a reply there. You might like to compare the recipe you used for this one with this and see how they differ and there might be some clues there http://wp.me/pSFVI-1wV. You say you rushed the rise, another time if it is late and you want to go to bed, try putting the tin in the fridge or a cool room and bake it the next day. Rye barely rises in the oven so it won't produce any bubbly oven spring, it has to do all its bubble making during the proving stage. Don't give up and have a happy Easter ! best wishes Joanna
