These just came out of the oven:

These are the first of a few days of baking (I need to get more flour first). I'm trying to get the freezer stocked up, and enough baked to give some to my grandparents.
Am I correct in assuming the one at the bottom of the picture bubbled out because my cuts didn't start far enough down?

I think you just had a large bubble of air trapped in the dough there. Did you take a rectangle of dough and roll it into the loaf shape? Most of the time when I get a bubble out like that, there is a big void/air bubble in the dough from trapped air.

No, I formed both from dough balls. But that makes sense, as I did have some bubbles on the ends that I had to pop after shaping.

Thank you! This might be the best batch I've ever made! Easy to slice evenly, fluffy and not dense, the crumb is nice, baked all the way through, AND tasty! I'm pretty proud of how it turned out.
Just look at my dad's evenly sliced slice here:

It would make an awesome grilled cheese sandwich!
