Dear Smart People Who Know How to Bake Things,

Please help me to not have this happen to my sourdough bread:

I am sure that there is some little something I am doing that causes this to happen… letting something rise too long, or not long enough, or maybe the oven temperature is all wrong, or the starter is flawed somehow… or maybe I am just incapable of baking a nice loaf of bread.  I could probably figure it out myself, but frankly? I just want someone to tell me what causes this. I’ve been through a lot of trial and error (lots of error) with sourdough, and I don’t feel like doing online research on the topic anymore.

Help me help me help me.

A Good Cook, But Not So Much With the Baking



  1. Hahahahaha! I can’t help you!!

  2. Okay. . . I’m just now seeing this. And, I have no clue. So sorry.

    I know sometimes with breads that are supposed to have a crunchy/chewy thing going on, there’s a pan of water placed on a low shelf in the oven. . . ? No clue, my friend.

    But, I’m dying to start a sourdough starter, and “start” baking sourdough bread.
