I did all that although the recipe stated put on the baking tray but i put it into a well oiled box but i was. Thinking is there a time limit onhow long the starter can be made as mine stood all day and over night .

As long as your dough rose after adding the starter, I don't think the length of time the starter stood is really an issue. If your bread was well risen, but had no holes then I think it more likely the air has got knocked out of the dough when you transferred it from the oiled container to th baking tray. Persevere, Christie, it will come. You wouldn't believe how long it took me to get sourdough right!

I came home from a run tonight and had a freshly baked soft white roll with butter on. I left them cooling before setting off

Normally i don't bother much with white but it really hit the spot . It would be good with chips 😃 Oh and goid boiled ham 😋

I made a cracking cheese and chilli loaf today, and as I twisted the loaf round itself, it didn't spread in the oven *really happy*
It was really lovely with thick soup for tea.  :)

All sounds lovley , been on holiday so not made any for 2 weeks  , doing a diet cutting back on bread but not out that would be too radical.
