A question about a recipe: Bread - A Country Loaf

Countryloaf

I have a question about step 5 on the recipe "Bread - A Country Loaf" from lapadia. It says:

"Uncover the loaf and turn the oven on to 375 degrees. Bake for 20 minutes. " does that mean you start the bread off in a cold oven?

A "cold" oven means to turn the heat off, or in this case no heat at all. And let it ride. Make sure to NOT open the oven door during this step.

Hi koechin!

YES! With this loaf I DO start baking in a cold oven. While the oven is preheating the loaf gets a little extra rise, it works beautifully. I don't do this with all my breads, hope you give it a try. Let me attach that same bread I made a couple weeks ago, using a large loaf pan. Read the head note for extra details:
