Sexy Beast...breadzilla!

I've been stuck in a rather pleasant rut for a while, churning out white or seedy (mmm...seedy) sourdough. With the weather warming up, my mind turned of course to making labne (naturally) and as I hate to waste anything I made the rye and whey loaf from the Bourke Street Bakery cookbook (the whey is the liquid that you get from making labne out of yoghurt). Except I didn't have any rye flour, so I used spelt which it would seem behaves quite differently to rye. I tweaked, cajoled and temporarily forgot the dough and this morning baked this big boy. Missed photo was bigger than my head. I've given it up for adoption and I believe it's new carers are well pleased with their handsome  bundle of joy.
