Le Cloche defeat
I have tried cloche baking without success. I thought the idea was to get "BROWNED" bread. My loaves rise well following a King Arthur recipe for cloche use but the bread is not brown. I have had to turn on the broiler(UGH) to brown the loaves.
My oven is an electric convection which bakes the breads faster than the recipe calls.( internal temps to 200 degrees ) The loaves reach 200 degrees without being browned. I leave the cloche cover off for the last ten minutes of baking and spritz heavily.
What to do?
