How do I get a Crusty Exterior like a Bakery?
A Spray Bottle: Mist the loaf (before placing it into a hot oven) with warm water. Spray the oven once the bread is loaded, and then again about 5 minutes into baking. THIS IS THE METHOD I USED
Boiling Water: After loading the bread into the oven, pour boiling water (about ½ cup) into a cast iron skillet on the shelf below.
Covering the Loaf: Enhance #2 method by placing a metal bowl over the bread (this technique works best with a loaf) letting the front of the bowl overhang the cookie sheet, leaving a gap that lines up with the skillet on the bottom rack. Allow to bake this way for 15 minutes and then remove the bowl.
