Why does it crack from top?
Tarla Dalal
29 May 21 01:11 PM
   This may be due to 2 reasons: Firstly, the bread may have less water. Secondly, it is possible that the bread was over proofed.

   Yes I did it keep it a little longer than the first 45 minutes and the second 30 minutes resting time. That could be the reason.

   May be the size of the tin in incorrect and always bake in an oven which is preheated and in the middle rack.
