I'm not Natalia, but I know that I cut slight hash marks with a knife in my bread before rising....it looks pretty and gives it room to rise.

Yes, did you slash the dough like they tell you to?
This is a quote of #8:

8. Dust the top of the loaf liberally with flour, which will allow the slashing, serrated knife to pass without sticking. Slash a 1⁄4-inch-deep cross, scallop or tick-tack-toe pattern into the top. (This helps the bread expand during baking.)


If you did that and it did not do anything ... I don't know, your dough might have been too wet but I still think it should work some.

I picked up some salt at Costco today (I was out) and decided to stock up on flour. I want to do this as soon as the girls go down for naps but am having anxiety about the fact that A) I don't own a stone, B) I don't know if I own a container big enough to store the dough, and C) I worry that I will successfully ruin what appears to be a rather fool-proof bread. I wish someone had step by step pictures. Our library doesn't have the book and I'm too broke to buy it.

I'd take pictures, Manda...but my family just ATE the rest of the bread I'm going to make more on Monday, after our open house party tomorrow. I can do pics then if you need it.

So do you slash the bread before it "rests", or right before you put it in the oven?
