Temperature Change

Push In

Did you have any idea that when baking in a gas oven the temperature you’re baking at it likely to change? Neither did I which is why my first two loaves of Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread came out a blacken door stop.

The second two loaves came out rather soft in the middle. But the outside of the bread was starting to get overdone. The recipe says 350 degrees so what did I do wrong?

What I did wrong is that when baking cookies, cakes (this bread is very cake like) and brownies (or similar goodies) in a gas oven you should really turn the temperature down 25 degrees. That didn’t appear in the manual for the stove but you live you learn.

So gas oven users, think 25 degrees less for your holiday goodies.

I’ll share the recipe next.
