So this first experiment was somewhat a failure. I wanted to make a bread with more air holes and a thicker crust. I thought if the dough was wetter, that might be it!
I used a little sourdough starter and a white bread recipe.
And then I let it rise to form a loaf. It turned into a pancake..
But there were lots of holes! No thicker crust though. Must be the steam that does it.
Well, onto the next experiment!
