My last couple of loaves were really nice. the most recent one is still in the oven for about 15 mins, but I can already see that I didn't get ANY oven spring. Grumble.
Anyway, thinking about my oven spring, or the lack thereof, what is better:
1. preheat the oven so that it's piping hot
2. preheat the oven so that it's hot, but more cozy.
in my mind, not making it very hot should allow for a better spring, though experience showed me otherwise. would anyone out there have an answer to my dilemma, hopefully before 7pm Melbourne time, as I am putting another loaf in the oven then for a friend.
Thanks a million,
