Baking in top element electric oven
I have been baking sourdough bread in a standard electric oven with element on the bottom, but I have started using an electric oven with the heating element on the top.
This is causing lots of problems with my bread!
Firstly I don't get oven kick / rise because the top of the loaf just dries out despite spraying and placing dish of water in oven.
Secondly the top crusts way to quickly causing the outside of the bread to burn before the inside is cooked.
I have tried to keep the oven as humid as possible and keep spraying but that did not work.
How can I resolve this problem? Any info, tips, suggestion welcome.
Obviously it is best to have the fan forced switched off in this situation.
