How To Score Sourdough Bread Video

Want to know more about How to Score Sourdough Bread? Here’s a quick 2-minute video that shows you the basics. In my Sourdough Video Tutorial Gallery, I have several scoring videos for you to choose from.

A loaf of bread.

Whether you slash or score – totally up to you.  I do one or the other depending on my mood.  If I do a slash, I usually don’t apply much rice flour and just leave the loaf a’la natural with a single slash.  But, if I do a score pattern, I’ll use some white rice flour sprinkled on top to bring out that pattern of the score.

No matter what style you choose it’s important to use a sharp blade and use confident slashing strokes. You want to avoid poking the dough and dragging the blade.
