Sourdough Bread Update
The reminder I set up on Outlook chimed at me this week.
“FEED YOUR SOURDOUGH!”
I thought to myself . . . has it already been 10 days?
After ignoring the pestering pop-up naggings of my computer, I obeyed the reminder and fed my starter.
I also made some bread.
I couldn’t disappoint Melanie and some of you left some great suggestions and encouragement.
However, there was one little problem that really wasn’t so much of a problem. I had already packed my bread loaf pans in anticipation of next week’s move.
The result was 2 round loaves.
My second attempt at making sourdough bread turned out better than the first. The dough rose higher . . . maybe it helped that I did incorporate a little elbow action. I also had to add about a cup of water because the sponge dough originally couldn’t accommodate the 3 1/2 cups of wheat flour, which was the minimum suggested by Sue Gregg. Perhaps this explains why our bread wasn’t so crumbly and dry during round two. Lastly, I used butter instead of coconut oil
I’ll have you know that my recipe for homemade “No-tella” tastes delicious on this fermented creation.
