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.   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  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 🙂
