Today I baked my first ever sourdough bread. I used the easy recipe that came with the starter, it’s considered easy because it uses some yeast in addition to the sourdough starter.
After feeding the starter and letting it bubble and brew for awhile it was time to add the rest of the bread ingredients. After mixing and kneading it had a rise in the bowl. After the first rise, I punched down the dough, cut it in half, and formed two loaves.
They rose for another hour and then got slashed on top.
Then into the preheated oven. Bake for 20 minutes and tadaa– Sourdough!
For my next batch of loaves I think I will try a recipe that uses wheat flour, hand ground by us of course! I was going to wait until dinner to cut into a loaf, the bread sounds like it will go great with my sausage minestrone soup, however I have no self control– it smells too tempting. Must go taste my bread!
