Slashing! Or How to Score a Loaf

Here's a question for you bread bakers. Do you slash the top of your loaf before baking?  Sometimes I do but I am never sure where or how to slash. Here's a handy little chart that answers all those slashing queries.

  1. I usually slash the top of a loaf before baking. I think it makes the finished loaf look nice. I think it's also supposed to help with the rise? Lots of ideas for pretty patterns in your chart!

  2. Ok I am a slasher!! With my everyday loaf I slice it 1/4 of an inch deep. This is a fantastic reference friend! Wishing you a great weekend! Nicole xo
