Step 7 – Loosely cover the pan with foil to keep the bread from overly browning and bake for 15-25 more minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. 

  • Step 8 – Let the bread rest in the pan for 10-15 minutes and then use the parchment paper to carefully remove the bread from the pan.  Place the bread on a wire rack to cool completely. 
  • Step 9 – Then the bread is ready to slice, serve and enjoy!  

Recipe Tips

  • Prepare Baking Loaf – To easily remove the bread from the pan, line with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray. It makes it easier to slice with the bread is out of the loaf pan.
  • Baking Bread – Cooking time will vary when baking this bread. After about 30 minutes we recommend covering with foil so the center of the bread can finish cooking. Inserting a toothpick in the center of the bread is the best to make sure the bread is fully cooked.
  • Rest Bread – For best results, we recommend resting bread in the pan for about 15 minutes.
