    Very nice bread, almost like a plain loaf. Although I don't think the brown flour is necessary

  2. 5 star rating

    This Rustic bread was my first bake using Bakingmad and I must say it was brilliant. The recipe was very easy to follow and the end result was wonderful. One change I made was to put the kneaded loaf into a cast iron pot after I had preheated it in the oven at fan 200C. I baked it from 30 minutes and then took the top off the pot and continued to bake for a further 10 minutes.
