Hello! I’ve been baking with my starter for about 5 months now. I work from home, so I usually make 2 - 3 loaves per week with my starter. I feel like I’ve got a pretty good basic loaf and have been trying some variations with that, to some moderate success and some pretty epic failures. So far I’ve done pretty easy stuff – craisins and white chocolate chips, espresso and chili chocolates, muffalletta, cheese and jalapeno – some of these have gone well, and some not so much. I was watching an old episode of Bake Off and I noticed that they do a soda bread with goat cheese. I know that soda bread is VERY far down the spectrum from sourdough. But just wondering if anyone has used a softer cheese in their baking? One of the things I find frustrating when I’ve used cheddar (and even really the chocolate chips) is that they seem to evaporate in the loaf and don’t leave much flavor behind. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong?
I pretty much exclusively use KA bread flour because my husband and kid don’t like whole wheat or any other variation on flour that I’ve used.
Thanks for any tips!
