  1. Hi - I was introduced to your blog by Aseem and decided to try this bread. Quick questions-
    a. how does one know when the bread is done? very brown?
    b. how much does it rise normally? I accidentally baked it at 180 F for about an hour, before realizing my error and then upped the temp. It tastes delicious but is a little denser than I expected!
    Thanks, Mamta

  2. Hi mamta
    Welcome aboard Sikandalous . Great to hear that you baked this bread and liked the flavor . As this recipe is yeast free , your bread wont rise above 3 inches or so . The consistency of the dough should be similar to very thick slush , not totally solid . That should do the trick .
    Also your oven has to be perfectly caliberated or else you maynot get the best result.
    Bake 5 minutes less - 40 mins , and test with a toothpick , it should come out clean .
    LET YOUR BREAD COOL TOTALLY OM A RACK , to get a lighter result .
    BTW , my fav bread is the potato walnut one

  3. I must add that non yeast breads tend to be a bit denser - they taste even better toasted .
