Honey Oat Hearth Bread Loaf
Greetings. I wanted a larger pan for baking bigger quantities of dough into one loaf. I found the USA Hearth Pan and got it. Then, I found the recipe for the Honey Oat Hearth Loaf. All was well until the directions for baking. The recipe said to preheat oven to 350F, but then a few sentences later, it said to bake at 375F. Big dilemma. I chose 360F for the specified 30 minutes. It was definitely not done per internal temp and by looking at the bottom of the loaf out of the pan. So, back in at 375F for 20 more minutes. Finally, internal temp up to 199. I took it out, let cool a bit, then took it out of the pan. It sounded hallow. I let it sit overnight. Upon cutting into the loaf today, I thought the lowest 2” of the bottom seemed “doughy,” Once I toasted it, I tasted fine, but still a bit doughy. Help me! What might I have done differently. Thanks.
