Here are a couple of pics of the bread as it turned out in the end on Sunday. It tasted lovely!

Love the "apple peel" scoring pattern. Great bake!
Hello Joanna, The crumb of your bread looks nice and colorful and like Syd, I love the "apple peel" scoring also (nice observation, Syd!).From breadsong
Hey Syd and Breadsong, It wasn't meant to be apple peel (hee hee) just a opening spiral, but it didn't open as much as I wanted, and the edges were a bit ragged, how do the bread scoring maestros get such smoooth lines ??? so I'll pretend I meant it that way...
Thanks for the nice comments too Daisy A, I wish I could give you a slice to try... it's so worth making this bread. I wrote about it over on my blog yesterday as it's part of my baking group's breads for this month.
