  15. To test loaf is cooked, touch lightly with your finger, loaf should spring back.

Keeps fresh for a couple of days when stored in a cool dry container. However I prefer to freeze it. Usually cut up in a larger container, transfer individual pieces into smaller dry containers for transporting to school or the office.
