Not sure if it was because the stove was too hot, or now that I think about it, it’s probably because I only let it rise once. I suspect punching the bread down & letting it rise a second time would have eliminated the big air gap at the top. Or not.
Regardless, this is what we're eating with our pea soup for supper tonight. The smell of ham & pea soup is wafting around the living room & it's driving me crazy. Can't wait to eat!
Hmm, now that I really look at the soup, I can kind of understand why some people won't even try it. Oh well, more for ME!
