Well, I can't deny that bread is best when cooled, but I think it's
stretching the forebearance of any child to pull something they

warm. I don't think the off flavors will bother the child, or even
noticed. And a little butter and jam can hide a multitude of sins.
How about saving a bit of the dough and baking it as a roll, alongside
the loaf? Then she could taste it right away and you wouldn't have to
cut into a whole loaf.
