exploded bread  

I exploded my bread.

exploded bread

(Apparently when I took the dishcloth off the top, it tore the far side of the bread. Which I couldn’t see, what with it being the far side, and it baked that way. Oops. Smells heavenly, though.)

(photo taken with my new phone. I gotta get an app to upload straight to Flickr. (Since I loathe Picasa.))

(I have decided the humane thing to do is chop off the explody bit and eat it with butter and jam. *looks noble*)

I think it looks friendly.

Nothing wrong with slightly exploded baked goods. As long as they are still good.

Besides, it's better than an exploding BOOM-Meringue.

I absolutely admire your nobility. Absolutely. (I have to cut slashes in my sourdough, to stop it exploding in the oven; and even then, it's sometimes quite eruptive. It's called 'oven spring', and it's a good thing, 'k?)

It was good of you to put it out of its misery.

I can never remember the name of it but the slice on the top of a bread loaf is not a decorative thing. After the bread rises it's important to make a slice or two so that as the bread cooks the air has a way to escape. Without it or sometimes if you wait too long after making the cut before putting the bread into the oven you will have an explosion. Just as delicious but not quite as pretty lol.

Depends on the type of bread of course, some kinds will be just fine but if the dough tore a bit that could have lead to a misplaced cut type of situation when it baked.
