Dusting bread before baking

December 21, 2011 - 4:19pm -- eusebius

Has anyone used a flour duster to "add" flour to the top of bread before baking?  When I proof bread in a basket, my bread normally has a nice white coating from the rice flour I use to prevent sticking.  When I don't use a basket, I'm tempted to sprinkle flour on the top for decoration.  Does anyone else do that and use something other than rice flour?
