Remarks
Disposable aluminium cases are practical for this recipe as they allow for easy cooking and freezing.

You may well have some dough left over. If so, weigh out 100 g portions, wrap in plastic film and freeze to use as soured dough later.
Keeping
A few hours once cooked, otherwise several weeks in the freezer.
