yeah, it definitely says 500 degrees for 12 minutes, and then 200 degrees for another hour. i can help if the name "sunburst" comes from the coloring perhaps? After I turned down the heat, it didn't brown any further, and it just finished it's hour on 200, and is the same color. The texture in the dark spots seems to be the same as everywhere else, so I'm beginning to think maybe it's supposed to look like this?
i suppose as long as it tastes ok, that's all that matters, b/c I've got some plans for decorating the top of it. I'm just concerned about the taste.
