I am making sour dough breads since this Spring, and I really enjoy this challenge. It’s so different from instant yeast baking, and there is a lots to learn. I finally bought a proofing basket (banneton) to help the shape of sour dough, and I love it.
This is my sweet sour bough bread with dates and walnuts.
I realised that I need to dust more flour onto the proofing basket than usual when I make this bread, as the dates can get sticky.
