  • Please critique my bread.

    Please critique my bread.

    The crumb is probably on the small side but the crust is just so crusty, it taps a really hollow sound.
    Hmmmhm, the margarine just melted into all the nooks and crannies as it was still hot.

    It may be just a tad overdone?

    I love watching my crust rise and change colour in my WFO.

        Me thinks you need that thermometer sooner then later.

        LOL nothing like burnt bread. What was the cook time on that?

          I didn't know lava rock was edible. I hope you don't break a tooth.

                Oh my. Did it hurt the butter?

                I believe even the most optimistic would call that "overcaramelized'.

                  Not being any kind of baker myself, I'm left with a few questions.
                  How could a bread still retain most of its original form, turn completey black (like charcoal), still have 'crumb', and still be able to be sliced in half, without bursting into flame and turning into ash??? I know we are not dealing with 800F pizza temps, but how did it turn completely black, stay intact, and become charcoal? Was it a lack of oxygen in the oven from keeping the door in place that kept it from burning up? I've never made charcoal intentionally, so is this the basic process - high heat, enclosed space, for an extended period of time?
                  Just curious, as funny as this appears, it really is pretty cool that this bread stayed intact.

                    This bread like most of my attempts at making it didnt work so I chucked in the oven and closed it off.

                    I was going to set up the photo with a bottle of vino and some cheese....
                    But I ate the cheese and drank the vino..

                      About 6 hours give or take.
