I found that generating steam with bbq lava stones worked best for me. I put a few stones in a cast iron pan at the bottom of the oven. I also use a pizza stone to cook the bread. Temp is between 200 and 250 for about 40-45 min. I open the oven after 20min to release the steam.

10x. The combination of berries and chocolate was very good it also took me by surprise. I think toasted the next day tasted even better.

What percentage blueberries and chocolate did you use?

Did not keep count of that but 1 small bar of chocolate and around 200g of berries. The berries where not evenly dispersed. I yet have to perfect folding the berries in without destroying them. The idea is that they burst in the oven.

Wow.  This looks yummy.  I read a blog somewhere (?) of an American baker living in france and she did a couple sweet additions loabes- one was adding cocoa powder to a sourdough recipe. I really like the idea of white chocolate with berries though, divine.

I take they were fresh blueberries and not dried. What about using frozen blueberries for the mixing?

But it almost tripled the bulk fermentation. I followd the tartine bread country sourdough loaf and added 10% blueberries and 10% white Chocolate. This was my result. Tasted great. Final proof was over night in a 50 F fridge then into the oven
