MY BAKING METHOD

 

I use a bench top over with is smaller so  t he cooking time is different.

I use my Airfry option temp is 200deg for 15min - then cover with tinfoil (so it doesn't burn the crust)

I then put the bread back in the oven again, using the bake option 180deg  for another 15-20min testing the internal temperature in the last 10 mins
