Squash Loaf

Here's how crumbastian rated their bake:




What went well?

Weird but good flavour. Very moist crumb.

What didn't?

I didn't have proofing baskets or a sharp blade for scoring. I would also have let the loaf sit at room temp for longer before baking (seems underproofed).

I love that color! In terms of your crumb, the biggest thing I notice is the large air pockets – those are likely due to air getting trapped during your shaping, as opposed to fermentation bubbles. One thing that I like to do to try is pinch out the holes and make sure you're not tucking air into it during the final shape. Other than that I'd *maybe* let it go a little longer in the oven, but I tend to like my crust well done. Oh, and good job on the laminating!
