When good bread goes bad...

Tell 'em it's 'focaccia'.

I got cocky and thought I could make a double batch of sourdough. That means mixing it by hand because my mixer bowl isn't large enough to handle 7+ cups of bread dough. I did something wrong (so very wrong) and ended up with a large, ever-expanding glob of really wet dough. I tried to form 2 loaves, but ended up with one mutant monster by the time it "rose". I use the quotes because while it expanded on the sides, it actually became shorter in height, much like the women in my family do as we age. Ah well, while it wouldn't win any awards for presentation, it did taste very good.
