Leader's Pain au Levain au Tournesol
I made Daniel Leader's Pain au Levain for the first time today. I added 3/4 cups of sunflower seeds to the dough, but I did not soak them as he recommended. Also, I brushed the batards with water while they were proofing and gently pressed more seeds to the tops.
The oven spring and bloom were beyond my (modest) expectations. The bread was pretty yummy, too.
