7. While the loaves are rising, set a large roasting pan containing 2 inches of boiling water on the oven floor (or the lowest shelf of an electric oven) and preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 8. Brush the loaves with egg-white glaze, being careful not to let the glaze drip onto the pan, as it sticks and burns. With a single-edged razor blade or a small, sharp knife, cut three diagonal slashes, holding the blade almost parallel to the surface, about 1/4 inch deep on each loaf. Sprinkle the loaves with "black caraway" or caraway seeds, if you like. 9. Bake for 30 minutes on the middle and upper shelves of the oven, then brush again with glaze, exchange shelf positions, and remove the water pan. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes longer, or until there is a hollow sound when you rap the bottom of the loaf. 10. Cool the bread on racks. There is no historical or etymological theory for the term, "corn" in this bread. Ah-Choo in Md. 11/17 06:29 pm
