Oooh @lewys-gp 

Lovely looking loaf.   I like bread like @Cleoriff  I bought a bread machine mainly to bake great fresh bread that doesn't have preservatives in and at any time I  need one.  It makes a wide variety of breads 🍞  need time to make bread by hand but really satisfying. I  don't always watch Great British Bake Off but will (like @Mi-Amigo ) next week .
