  • Bake 50-70 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. (It is a moist type bread, so if you hit caramel or apple, the toothpick may not be completely clean).
  • Check your bread about 20-30 minutes into baking, if it is browning quickly, cover loosely with aluminum foil to slow browning. Keep in mind that this is a darker bread, however.
  • Let cool COMPLETELY in the baking pan on a wire rack.
