This week’s Challenge: making sourdough starter


I love baking and after an array of cakes, cookies and muffins, my obvious step was to bake a loaf of bread.

Now bread making is no child’s play since you are at the mercy of the tiny little yeast that make your bread oh so soft and juicy. Β  So after being tormented by yeast not proofing correctly, I thought of trying another method which brought me to creating a sourdough bread.

My challenge here is to make a sourdough Β starter, perk up my dough with it and then pray to God like there’s no tomorrow for my bread to rise.

With the first two steps done, I am now waiting patiently for nature to act on it. This is a huge project for me because of all the learning experience I am getting, after all its an entirely new technique for me (and I am not sure whether I’ve nailed it).

Wish me luck people and any of you who have experience on working with sourdough starters and making bread from them, please please please: GUIDE ME.. for there is one thing I have realised; knowledge is best preserved when shared.

Hoping to get some tips from all you avid bakers and bread lovers πŸ™‚
