How to Tell if your Bread is Baked?

It can be difficult sometimes to tell if your bread is baked through, but we have a few nifty ways of making sure your delicious homemade bread is baked to perfection, every time.

  1. Check VisuallyAfter practice, you’ll soon be able to tell just by looking at your loaf whether it’s baked or not. The crust of the bread should be firm to the touch, dry and a golden brown colour. If the crust is pale, pop it in the oven for a few more minutes.
  2. No Soggy Bottoms HereTap the bottom of your bread. Take your loaf or rolls out of the oven (Carefully), turn them upside down and give the bottom a tap – it should sound hollow.
  3. Check the TemperatureYou could use a thermometer to check the temperature of the centre of your loaf. If the temperature reads 190ºC to 200ºC your bread should be ready.
