Raisin Sourdough Bread

My second try at

Raisin Sourdough Bread

It came out really nice this time!

The last time, my dough didn’t proof enough, but I baked it anyway.

It came out like  “Hoshi-Mochi” which is a Japanese – dried – crumbly – rice cracker, instead of BREAD.

So, I gave it another shot with a different recipe, and it worked really well for me :-)

I found a hint of sourness thanks to the sourdough culture.

Also, a tiny amount of ground cinnamon made the flavor come together with the whole wheat,

the raisins and the walnuts!

Nicely done crust made my day!

I just need more practice slashing the dough.

I should’ve scored the surface deeper to create an “ear” on my bread!

Practice, practice :-)
