this tastes super good, but i could not for the life of me get the inside of the bread to cook! the outside hardened and looked done, tasted done, but the inside was still totally raw. i dont know what i did wrong! i kept it in for over an hour and it's still ultra moist inside. i followed the recipe exactly, too.  :-\
