Every Weekend Sourdough Loaves

Instead of making the pumpernickel and braided loaf that was our assignment this time, I just decided to make my normal every weekend sourdough bread. I know, kind of a wimp out but, rye just doesn’t go over very well here at our house.

I try to make 2 sourdough loaves every weekend for us to use during the week. I start with ½ cup of my cold starter and then activate it by adding 1 ½ cup of flour and 1 cup of room temp water. Let that work for 12 hours or so at room temp and then add 1 cup flour and ¼ cup room temp water. After another 12 hours it’s ready. Use it all and make your favorite bread. It will raise the dough in anywhere from 2 to 4 hours.

 Last week we went thrifting for some props for my photos. Here’s what we got for less than 10 dollars. Can’t wait to photograph them.

Until our next baking adventure.
