Betty's Success Tip
Brown breads have a classic crispy crust that has a tendency to make testing for doneness tricky (the crust can cause the toothpick to look clean as it is pulled out). When checking for doneness on this bread, the toothpick should be dry rather than having a sticky or moist feeling to it.
