Very nice, looks delicious. I'm trying for more whole grain breads but this is something I have to try.                                                                  weavershouse

FP, Great looking loaf and very nice crust and crumb.

Thanks!

I was very pleasantly surprised with this bread. Very very mild (sourwise), very rich and incredibly soft and tender. I'm getting a better handle on how to formulate my own recipes now and understanding how different ingredients and ferments work together.

I'm adapting this recipe (slightly less butter, less sugar) to serve as my regular go-to pain de mie.

Looking for a pullman loaf tin at the moment - any ideas where I can get one in the UK?

Cheers

FP,

I just Googled "Baking pans UK" and here's a site that has the pan I think you're looking for.  I have one that looks like this one.  I got mine (pain de mie pan) in France but this looks like the same pan.  They have the sliding lid.

Good luck with your pullman pan search.

EDIT: FP, I just double checked this site and it only the sliding lid they're selling, the pan is not included.  Go figure...  Sorry about that.  Try Googling "baking pans" and see if you get one (with a pan and lid).

I came across a post by Dan Lepard recommending that one takes a trip to Paris to purchase the necessary pans...the only other option mentioned on the forum in question was ordering from Malaysia! 

Paris would be awesome of course. It's been years since I was last there. Meanwhile, and slightly more down to earth, I'll keep searching on ebay :)

I know of two companies in Sweden who delivers these kind of pans, although i suspect that only one of them delivers internationally.
