Small loaves and 3 freebie tins

Small loaves and 3 freebie tins

I mixed up the dough last night and made a small, freeform loaf for lunchtime. I had made some soup with the gammon juices, so I had a slice, buttered, with that. It was delicious, and I’ve made a diary note of when I put the dough in the fridge, so I know when...
