Has anyone baked the Pan de Cristal recipe from King Arthur yet?
Has anyone baked the Pan de Cristal recipe from King Arthur yet? I have it rising now and wonder if anyone has tried the recipe yet. The dough looks good so far.

The next day I made a sourdough version (Breadtopia) and cooked loaves at 500 F on baking stone 10 min and lowered temp to 410F for the next 20 min. with good results. I plan to duplicate the King Arthur recipe with use the Breadtopia timing and temps but move the baking stone up one level.
I reduced the recipe to make one loaf. The recipe makes 4.
As you can see from the photo it is not as airy as the photo on the King Authur site.
But wow it is delicious!!! The one loaf I made is almost gone.
I followed the instruction up to the baking part. I do not have a pizza stone. I preheated a ceramic loaf pan and put the bread in with parchment paper. I did not remove it from the pan to finish it.
I will try it again, maybe make 2 loaves next time.
