6. Check for doneness: Insert a toothpick into the center of the bread; if it comes us clean, it’s ready. If not, continue baking and checking every five minutes until done.

7. Cool completely before slicing: Let the bread cool in its pan on a wire rack for at least 30 minutes before removing it from the pan and slicing it; otherwise it may crumble apart.
