Sweet sourdough treats?
So perhaps this is a long shot. I am working with the panettone recipes that I've found here and elsewhere to figure out how to make a naturally leavened panettone here in the PNW, where the rising times suggested elsewhere are nowhere near accurate during these cold months. My wife, my parents, and my co-workers have suffered dutifully through my experiments, commenting on various things that could be changed in the bread and letting me return to the pantry and to the internet to figure out how I can improve my creations. And I progress about as I expected, so that's about it for my story about how I came to be writing this post. On to the question.
Panettone simply can't be the only thing out there. Does anyone have any suggestions for sweet breads that are either traditionally made from sourdough starters, or are easily converted to natural leavening? Recipes would be excellent, but anything at all, even a recollection of something somebody's grandparents or parents used to make, would be awesome.
