Don't know if you saw my suggestion, GB, but a small bowl works really well too--lined with saran. Makes a slightly taller loaf for me.

Cando - let me see if I have this right. In the 2 hr rise step, the small bowl makes the loaf taller? (I've only had one cup of coffee .)

Thanks for all the tips - I used 1/2 tsp. yeast,but I usually let my rest for 24 hrs. (cause I start it in the morning, usually) and my second rise in a smaller w/ deep sides, didn't use plastic wrap -just dusted the bottom w/cornmeal -top too -then sprayed plastic wrap and placed on top-then towel ! Hubby and I really like it a lot !

Instead of letting the final rise--2-3 hours or whatever--do it on the towel, as some have said they don't like, I have been putting it in a smallish bowl--maybe about 6" in diameter. Because of its shape and the bowl sides, the bread doesn't flatten out as it does on the towel. So when it is dumped into the baking bowl, it is a bit "taller" a blob of dough than it is if left to rise on a flat surface. It has more shape, if that makes sense.

I made the bread over the weekend and OH MY GOD it is delicoius!!! Everyone who has tried it either wants the recipe or wants me to make it for them...I have never had bread this delicious...

The bottom did burn a little and I did not go the extra 15 minutes to half hour to brown (it was already browned) but WOW! Thanks for the fantastic recipe!

Also...since I am a little lazy about laundry I didn't want to mess up my towels so I did my final rise on cheesecloth...Worked beautifully. Just another thought.

Do I use something to grease the pan that I bake in?
I want to start this today, so please help.

No grease is necessary. Have fun!

Thanks for the explanation, Cando. I read back over all the posts and wasn't it your idea to put it in an 8 cup measuring cup? That sounds like a great idea.

No grease is necessary but put some cornmeal on the bottom of the pan.
