Looking for inspiration? Top Bananas! the Mumsnet cookbook is packed with great recipes your family will love.
Just wondering how this is achieved?
Put a bowl of water in the oven and/or throw a glass of water over the oven floor when you put the bread in. It is the steam that makes the crust.
Ah cheers, but to make it really flaky do you need a special oven? or can it be done by just keeping up the humidity?
Just an ordinary oven. That said, it is not a good idea to through a glass of water into a gas oven as it might extinguish the flame, hence the bowl of water. You could also brush the surface of the risen dough with water just before you put it in.
Thanks for the advice FKASHD
