:oops: I wasn't going to say anything, but I'd better own up.
Another failure. Before viewing sub's pics I made another batch, a double batch for 1kg of dough (pound loaf recipe doubled) to make 2 pound loaves (obviously). I did this to freeze 1 & cook one to see if it does work.
I made only small mod, water should have been 360mls, I used 350mls. 360mls water + 40mls oil would retain the .67 ratio but reducing the water by 10ml gives a ratio .65 . Dough looked & felt beaut, came together well in the bowl, first rise was slow at about 1.5 hrs, second rise was very slow at 2 hrs.
Baked at 190C (375F) @ 45mins looked good, sounded solid, removed @ 1hr and was dry
All ingredients well within life, I'll back off the temp 10 deg & see what happens with second loaf now on rise. :?
