I am sort of a novice maker, I am trying to make all of my bread at home for all our needs. I am having problems with my sandwich bread which always comes out with a huge crack in the sides. I have tried to proof first, I have tried baking with a pan of water in the oven at the same time. I have tried staggering the pans.
Can anyone suggest something? The bread tases ok, but looks and cuts bad.
