About 30 minutes before the rise is finished, place one large, non-metallic pan in the oven and preheat to 450 degrees. (Or you can place two smaller non-metallic pans for two loaves). Let the oven and the pans heat completely.
Once the loaves are doubled in size, place them, seam side up, in the hot pans. Cover and bake for – 30 minutes for one large loaf; 20 minutes for two small loaves.
Resist the urge to cut and eat!
If you cut too soon you will make the loaf flat and dense. The steam that is inside continues to make the bread fluffy inside.
When it’s cool, slice and enjoy!!
Also, I like King Arthur bread flour. It's fairly inexpensive and a good quality flour.
