Wonky Loaf - Update

Hi All,

Thank you for your support the last week with the wonky loaves I've had.  I've made some adjustments to the shaping and scoring and came up with this. 

It didn't quite have the ovenspring I wanted but i think that's because it ended up being a longer loaf than what i normally make.  It was my first go and pre-rounding with a bench rest of about 45 mins.  I then did a tuck and roll.

Thanks again.

I don’t know if I would expect much more oven spring from that one. The crumb looks quite open already. Good job!

Wow, impressive loaf.  Great ear, wonderful blisters, nice crumb and great colour on the crust.  Really good bake.
