Bread frustration! not my fault edition
Looking for peoples stories about failed loaves that weren't your fault!
Why do I ask? Because if I don't vent my frustration somewhere, I am going to crack my own skull open against the oven door.
I made a fantastic loaf today! I tried a new shaping method that worked really well for me, as my shaping usually results in an uneven mess of a thing. Popped it in the oven, happily awaiting my loaf to appear amazingly shaped and well.
Couple of minutes in to cooking, someone in my house asks if they can use the oven- "fine, just watch the bread."
I assumed they would use a different shelf! oh how wrong one person can be. They put a pot with a sharp edge right next to my bread, which at this point was still benefiting from a healthy dose of oven spring. Well, you can see where this is going I hope. I now have a loaf which is painfully deflated on one side and well risen and browned on the other.
End of pain!
Thanks for listening TFL brothers and sisters.
