I added far less flour to this loaf, so it was a little sticky to work with.
I sprinkled semolina flour on my work surface after I had the strands rolled out and it coated the bottoms of each portion as I braided.
Good luck – and try using more flour as you work the dough.
Thank you thank you! Nice to know it really can work in sourdough! I’ll take your advice and use more flour, plus a lower hydration dough next time…
Thanks again, Heidi.. 🙂
I think I feel a braid coming on next time I am baking…
Braiding is by far, one of the easiest forms to make.
Occasionally, the bred will come apart at the braid point when slicing if you are not careful, though.
That is a beautiful loaf. I like the way all of your breads taste. Your sour dough is the best I’ve had.
