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!
Which should we try first?
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
All the best bread bakers are slashers! Have a wonderful weekend.
