How do I score my sourdough? In this lesson, Vanessa explains how to score your loaf. In the heat to the oven the dough expands. This is called oven spring. By scoring you give the bread the opening to expand freely. This results in a much more open crumb and a beautiful pattern in the bread and if you get it right you get a much-coveted ear. This is more pronounced on oval or long loaves.
