Mellow Bakers - Dan Lepard's Mill Loaf
Guess what I forgot to slash my loaf. It might have been because I was preparing the Onion and Bay Loaf hot on the heel of this one. You can tell I cut this loaf before it cooled properly. It's a great tasting loaf even if I had to start up a new white starter (adaptred from my rye starter) for this one and also for the other two breads this month. (Give us a break from white starter, pleeease Paul)
Adaptations. A teaspoon of malt extract instead of malted grains. I'm out just now. I added yeast to get the bake done on Sunday night rather than Monday when I'm off to work, sob. It was ready for my sandwiches as a result. And I did use the bread machine for kneading. Otherwise entirely in line with Dan.
p.s. Radio 4 Food Programme on Sunday was "Sourdough" . Listen again before next weekend. I am as I only caught the last 5 mins. Andrew whitley featured but it was a different Dan.
