    Hi Katherine! I have a related quesition. I baked two loaves – one looks fine but the other one splits on the side. Also, they didn’t rise as what I expected. Before putting them into the oven, the poke test shows the rise is very slow. Do you think the side splits are due to the not enough hydration? If not, what are the other reasons?

    Thank you!
