Round two: a better rise and shape than last time, but the crust was a little bit chewy. Advice welcome!

I believe steam is the key to a crispy crust, so tray of boiling water or ice cubes in the oven or put the whole thing in a large casserole dish so the evaporated water stays as steam.

And no, don't put jam. Just butter. Or perhaps thick cut ham off the bone as well. And mustard.

Can you tell I haven't eaten bread this year?? 🥪

I have a fancy pants steam oven, with steam settings the same as the crustier loaf I made last week.

That's me out. I didn't even know there was such thing as a steam oven (and would have assumed it was invented by Stephenson)
