Bigger bread

I found a pretty good “no knead” bread recipe, but it gave me two “bricks” or small flat loaves. Not exactly what I’m looking for for sandwiches and the like. Then I remembered my mother mentioning that she never could figure out how my grandmother’s biscuits always came out so large until she realized her mother doubled the recipe and cut out the number for one recipe. I combined my two loaves into one and got a big loaf. See it there, on the left, as compared to its earlier friends on the right.

It was a little too big, as evidenced by this ooze. I’ll make 2/3 of the recipe next time and see if that makes a difference.
