__Recipe notes__
for the first rise, i sometimes place the dough in the car if it is a sunny day or the sink with warm water in it. to make a larger loaf add extra ingredients, this is also suitable for wholemeal for multigrain flour. I some times add olives and grated cheese to the mixture for a savoury loaf.
