    It's on page 1 of the thread - let us know how you get on - maybe we should have our own bake-off!

    Made my loaf tonight, it's cooling under a teatowel, hopefully won't dry out too quickly?! Looking forward to having some with breakfast in the morning :)
    It didn't rise a lot, I omitted the herbs, added a little extra water.. too hot to have a slice just now, to see the texture, but it smells lovely and looks more like a loaf than other bread recipes that I have tried :) will let you know what it's like after breakfast...

    That looks amazing - well done! What size tin did you use? It looks more "loafy" than mine!

    I used a 20x10.5cm silicone loaf mold. As I have got further into the loaf, I can see it's not completely cooked in the middle, so I reckon another 5-10 mins, checking at 5 min intervals, should do it. I cooked this one in my fan oven at 170 degrees for 30 mins. :)

    [email protected] I think I've got an (ancient, rusty) 1lb tin somewhere. If the bread works well and doesn't spike me then I might invest in a decent silicon 1lb pan! Or double the quantities and use a 2lb tin....

    Could you roll the dough into some seeds... like pumpkin seeds, sunflower, etc before putting it into the loaf tin? And if you did how would that change the carbs content?

    Its not exactly a dough mixture just add the seeds to the mixture or just springle on top once you place mixture into loaf tin

    Has anyone found eating this bread makes them run to the toilet more frequently?

    I made two loaves yesterday and needed to use the toilet (urine) around 05:15 and 07:30. Thoughts?
