RECIPE TIPS

Place the oven rack in the middle. This allows the hot air to circulate evenly around the batter, resulting in even cooking.

When the bread is done, do not open the oven door all the way. Leave the door slightly open and wait 5 to 10 minutes so that the heat enters the kitchen and there is no temperature shock that causes the bread to collapse (the time depends on the season of the year, if it is summer leave it for about 5 minutes, if it is winter 10 minutes).

Some tips to prevent the bread from sinking:
If the bread is taken out of the oven before it is fully cooked in the center, it can collapse as it cools. Use a toothpick to test whether the bread is cooked, it should come out clean when inserted into the center of the bread.
Do not open the oven door while the bread is cooking, sudden temperature changes can also affect the bread structure, leading to the bread sinking.
Always make sure to preheat the oven before placing the bread in the oven.

For extra flavor you can add some ingredients like vanilla extract or maple syrup to the bread batter.
