Lumos did a lovely cocoa sourdough with cranberries, walnuts and orange peels for Codruta from the fresh loaf. 

visited Tokyo recently in December 2012. there, they have lovely ingredients for all sorts of cooking. especially at the tsukiji fresh market. bought some good green tea powder and black beans. 

after looking at the recipe for the cocoa sourdough, i had a thought of replacing the cocoa powder for the green tea powder. and added the black beans instead of the cranberries. yuzu peels instead of orange peels...

 this is how it turned out.. beautiful bitter flovor from the tea and sweetness from the black beans quite similer to chestnuts. aromatic yuzu... yum

Single sourdough Loaf

March 20, 2011 - 4:31pm -- bobkay1022

 This a single Loaf of Sour Dough Bread . The recipe was for 2 loaves in a pan. My luck has not been to good with making a loaf this style.  I think I have it down pretty good.  The only difference in the recipe I used the full 1/4 cup of active starter for one loaf instead of two.     It might have added to the flavor. 

 It proofed over night.  I gently took it out of the bowl. punched it down. Did two folds and then made my loaf . It proofed in the oven another 2 hours and then I baked it.
