Sweet sour dough

This is my first post. I am very excited as I have just made these two sweet sourdough loaves. Used whilst rarer grown from little black grapes in my garden and the loaf is apricot, almond and glacé morello cherry. Got the ideas from a post on this site but just guessed at quantities including honey, two eggs and milk. Haven't tasted them yet but I hope they taste as good as they look. Do others have sweet sourdough ideas?

Sorry predictive text is a nuisance - should read " used wild yeast" not  "whilst rarer"!

Those are some lovely sweets!

Look up "yeast water" or "Fruit yeast water" and enjoy! There are several members here that use fruit to make their natural yeast and have extensive posts.

Thank you I will. Just retried it with a cup of tea and it was delicious - wish I could beam a bit to you!
