    All I can say is absulutly perfect! :whistle: I did lot of no knead last year and loved it. Number one: it has a rustic, rich, hearty taste that is hard to beat. Number two: Don't have a real mixer in the 1st place! :laugh: Seriously a fine job. The seed mkes it look ALMOST store bought. ;)

    I tried to pat them on but didn't want to push to hard.

    Your bread looks great.

    I make a similar bread in a dutch oven. Since the dough is so wet, it tends to settle in the dutch oven before it really starts to bake and makes a thinner loaf than I like. I found a stainless steel bowl at Walmart that fits inside the 7 1/2 quart dutch oven that I use. After the dough rises overnight, I give it a slight knead and put it into the oiled bowl and let it rise again. Then I put the bowl inside the dutch oven for baking. This eliminates the need for parchment paper which sometimes gets into the folds of the bread.

    I've made rye versions, sourdough, oat flour, etc. Very adaptable recipe.

    Well I gave it plenty of tries, :woohoo: but I didn't notice a sourdough flavor. :ohmy:

    I use a cup of sourdough starter in place of the yeast and not quite as much flour and the bread has a great sourdough flavor.
