    I bake my own bread and go through about 10 kilos of flour every month. I have not mastered sour dough in all these years so once in awhile, I buy a loaf.

    I am lucky that I still love baking it all these15 years.

    Go for it!

    Nitram, your loaves are beautiful, and likely tasted even better than they look! You have not lost your baker's touch:sete_005:.
    I love baking breads--it's "recreational baking" for me. I also love giving a loaf, or a dozen rolls, or a flat bread foccacia to friends. They appreciate it, and I still have some room in the freezer!

    Hi Nitram, I baked my own bread too. After eating the seeded bread in UK and not able to get it off the shelf here I decided to make it myself. Ever since then I had never bought any kind of bread because home made bread is the best!!!:)

    I am puzzled to see your dough resting in the fridge … may I know why?
    Thanks.:)

    Thanks all,

    Hi its process called retarding,

    In this instance the first proof was done at room temp then shaped in the tins and put in the fridge over night for the second proof as mentioned above one loaf was brought back to room temp before baking the other was baked straight from the fridge.
