This loaf was made from the Biga Method, but I did dig up the book from Julia Child about how to bake the sandwich loaf without the lid.
She had the sandwich loaf recipe, which I use sometimes. The major problem for baking sandwich loaf at home is not the recipe, but the bread tin.
It's hard to find a proper bread tin in Melbourne. Especially for someone who works full time, a lot of professional stores don't open during the weekends. I was able to make my way to Marg and Marees in Heidelberg, which is the closest specialist shop to my home, 2 weeks ago, and bought 2 loaf tins, proper bread tins that are high enough to make proper sandwich loaf with square top.
I bought the 500g and 600g loaf tin, however there's only lid to fit the 700g tin. I don't intend to make big loaves because the children don't go through their bread that quickly and I prefer my rustic sourdoughs.
The 500g loaf tin is prefect for the Biga Loaf, and it's tall enough for me to use the Julia Child method although I didn't have a brick.
In her book, she said cover with foil, add a baking tray on top and then a brick. I added 3 heavy bread tins instead.
The result is good enough. Meanwhile, I'm still hunting down a lid for my tin.... I do find the biga loaf, texture wise, not the best for this type of shape.
