Rather than guessing, there's a better way to know when your bread is thoroughly baked. Use an "instant read" digital thermometer. At the end of timed baking, insert your digital thermometer in the center of the loaf. Make sure not to place it too close to sides or bottom of pan.I know that my loaf of gluten-free bread is thoroughly baked because my digital thermometer shows an internal temperature in the middle of the loaf of 208° F / 97.8° C. Easy. No more guessing when my bread is done.
