I'll start another batch. I really think the last time I used too much water (I say I, but my son measured it and I dumped it in and it's fault and I'm sticking to that!
) - it was icky sticky gloppy. Even after the first rise when I added more flour to "fold" it a couple times it was still sticky and gloppy. Seam? There was NO seam to be had at all! Hence I think it started with too much water.
So, I'll read your response before I begin.
The first bites when it was hot were fine. Once it cooled it was a bit stretchy/tough if that makes sense).
