Default Bread Brick

I had a hectic work day yesterday and tried to hustle a batch of whole wheat oatmeal bread into the oven on the proofing setting in the morning (it's a little chilly here and I was trying to time the proofing) -- but instead of setting the oven to Proof, I accidentally set it to bake at 325F. After about 6 hours I had succeeded in making a wheat brick. If you had enough of them you could have built a house. Blah.

I'm undeterred and I made the same recipe last night and I'm trying again today.

We have not bought store bread for months, and I'm not starting now. :-)

Happy Friday everyone.
James

Forgotten how to work the controls, haven't you?

It drives me nuts when I make mistakes like that. Sorry your oatmeal bread went for brickwork.

My next oven has a proofing setting... I'd love to be able to have more control over that step.
