My Favorite Sourdough ~ Seeded Norwich Sourdough

So, it turns out that Susan's favorite sourdough is also MY favorite sourdough. I love that recipe, it just works every time. This loaf was made with less started, indeed, so I am going to report the steps I have made differently and refer to Susan @ Wild Yeast for the detailed procedure, which you can find here.

I used half of all the ingredients listed in the original recipe, except that I did not realize that I did not have enough starter until I mixed all the other ingredients. But, despite my last failure I felt brave and tried to mix it anyway and allowed more time to rise.
Specifically, with my kitchen being not more than 65F, a total of 3.5 hours for the second rise.

Furthermore in one of the loafs I added a mix of seeds (puppy, pumpkin, sunflower, sesame and fennel, which I would omit the next time) between the first and the second rise.

There's nothing I like better than a good artisan bread. I even like eating bread over sweets. Your sourdough bread looks perfect.
