What causes sourdough bread to crack

Answered By: Herbert Hill Date: created: Nov 18 2022

The combination of moisture and high heat allow for an initial rise (oven spring) and then the crust sets. The moisture on the outside of the loaf quickly evaporates, forming that hard, ultra-crispy crust. The hairline fractures only form after you take the loaf out of the oven.
