Default Dick Adams' bread

I must compliment you Mr. Adams.

After viewing your loaves, baked both in and out of pans, I wondered if you
had conned us by photographing only the ones which came out best.

So I baked a loaf following your explicit instructions and came up with a
very tasty item. I am impressed and intend to retain the recipe for future
"loafing."

Only one thing I do that you do not mention. When I place the dough in the
pan to begin it's rise, I lightly spray the top of the dough with cooking
spray. I then cover the pan with plastic wrap and insert a few small holes
therein, (the wrap not the pan). The wrap comes off cleanly at baking time
and the moisture is kept in during time of rise.

Don't discount the possibility of dumb luck. It often strikes

That is interesting. But I should tell you that my rising loaves
are always covered or enclosed. Almost always it is under

in my web-posted stuff, I would like to know just where.

Don't discount the reality of a good "recipe." Have used it more than once
at this juncture. Results all good. This is my first try only as it relates
to your method. Have been working with sourdough for over 15 years.

My intention was to present the techinique I used to keep the dough moist.
It was not to say that you didn't mention "covering" during rise. My "spray
& wrap" method works me as I am sure covering as you do does the job also.
