Your 4qt. pyrex is big enough. I don't think this can be cut in half.

I am still perplexed at how it comes out so well without being kneaded. How is there any structure at all?

I've made bread almost every weekend for 2 months now (a wee little obsession of the moment). Have read about 50 pages of Shirley Corriher's Cookwise on bread/flour/gluten/water/salt/yeast, yada yada yada. From what I've read, this doesn't seem possible.

I will try this one this weekend. But still.... HOW does this work?

It wouldn't end up being squished?

You need to buy the magic flour Jenny

This bread looks amazing. I can't wait until I have some time to try it.

This bread is sooooo good. I've only allowed myself one (big ) slice before dinner. I kept looking at the dough and looking, when I tried to move it, it was so sticky - at that point I had my doubts.

I love the crust, I love bread, I love how easy it is. This bread will be the one that all others have to meet the standards of....

I'm going to have to buy a bowl, pot and some linen towels just for making the bread because it sure takes alot of time and the towels definately have to be washed. Next time I'm going to try spraying pam on plastic and give it a try.

OK I have a dumb question...how can I tell the difference between cotton and terry cloth and what will happen if I use the wrong towel?

It stuck so much to my linen towels that I can't imagine cotton being better at all. If you use terry cloth, you'll never get the bread off of it. This dough is barely goo...lol

A reg cotten towel is flat, like a dish towel.

Terry cloth is nubby. Cotton is like a flour sack. The terry cloth may leave nubby deposits on the bread but cover with enough butter and they won't be noticeable!!! That's my guess anyway - no cotton police will show up at your house - I don't think!!!

I suggest you rub so much flour into that towel that it fills every little thread and has a flat flour bottom.

Mine barely rose while baking. A 4 qt would be great. I may use that next time myself.
