Exploded sesame baguette
Tops flying off whole-grain breads are more or less common (but shouldn’t happen), leaving an unpleasant hole in the loaf. But I have not seen it happening to small breads like this sesame baguette à la Eric Kayser. The oven was quite hot as I had baked a tomato dish in it at 240°C for 50 minutes. Perhaps one reason for the utter ‘failure’. Not really. I stuffed it with stuff (butter, cheese, ham and watercress).
“If the bread has large holes, the baker has been sleeping”. Bakers’ saying.
