This yeasted high hydration bread was made using the recipe for Flax seed and Plum Bread on sfbi.com (San Francisco Baking Institute).

The ring was an attempt at achieving this beautiful loaf pictured on 750 Grammes : Recettes de cuisine (750g.com/recettes_brioches.htm)

The dough really is a bit too slack for this ring shaping. The braids didn't stay very well defined as the bread proofed and baked. But it was fun to do.
