Secrets For Batter Breads
Use the same pan for rising and baking. Most batter breads require only one rising, so let them rise and bake in the same pan.
Watch for small, unbroken bubbles during rising. Their appearance is an indication that the bread has risen sufficiently. (If large air pockets appear under the baked crust, it is an indication that the dough rose too quickly. Next time proof in a cooler place.)
