Blowing out sides of maple oatmeal bread
I've made Bernard Clayton's oatmeal maple bread a couple of times now and every time one side of each loaf blows out just at the top of the loaf pan. I've only had this happen once before with Peter Reinhart's potato, cheddar and chive loaf because I didn't score the top quite deeply enough for the cheese to bubble out so it forced its way out the side. Anyway, aside from that I've never had this happen before and am not sure why it's happening - and unfortunately I didn't get a picture for you to look at before the loaves got eaten up. The flavour and texture are great and it's our new favourite bread but it's not looking as pretty as I'd like. I'd love to hear any suggestions on how to avoid this so I can turn out a better looking loaf because I love everything else about it!
