I ran across this blog post yesterday and it got me interested. The blogger, theinversecook, used a wooden baking frame to make his very straight sided heavy rye bread. Since I can't seem to locate a Pullman pan anywhere nearby (online they cost an arm & a leg to ship up from the states) I thought maybe this would make a decent substitute.
Bonus points for having the ability to make it any size I may darn well want.
I have made Peter Rhinehart's Multi-grain Struan free standing loaf many times and find that no matter what I proof it in, it spreads out in baking and ends up about 3 inches high.
I am using spelt instead of whole wheat flour.......could that be the problem? Spelt and ww flour have always seemed to interchange okay for me before this particular bread.
The taste is great, by the way, and I plan to keep making it but would like the form to be more pleasing. Thanks from ahbread
