This was a busy baking weekend. I made 2 loaves of sourdough in my new brotforms, 2 loaves of Anadama, bread pudding with the leftovers from last week and a Pain de Provence. I had a terrible time with the Pain de Provence. I tried to do the final rise in the brotform and the bottom of the loaf kept opening up. I pinched the heck out of it twice. Finally I just reshaped and baked it freeform. It didn't look too great after having been degassed and reshaped 3 times, but it tastes good!
