Loaf 2

Just as awesome but slightly better. I remembered the salt this time - win!

I'm not up to Malin Elmlid's Bread Exchange levels yet but maybe I'll get there eventually. Any sourdough experts out there? If so, can you help me? How do I avoid that one especially cavernous hole? Obviously it is authentic and home-made and I love it but it would be easier to spread peanut butter on without the big hole...

For those of you who were interested, I would recommend Dan Lepard's sourdough starter method which you can find here. Because it uses extra agents (live yoghurt & raisins) that purists would probably turn their noses up at it is fairly idiot proof. See me, for example. Come back in a week and let me know how your little buddy is doing. Mine is called Albert and it is love. I'm going to go feed him right now.

  1. I'm an expert on taste! Send me some to try with lots of melty butter please x

  3. nice looking bread!


  4. I think sourdough is my favorite, um, genre? of bread. It goes with everything. xx

  5. Hey Lady! Be proud of those holes :)
    It is just a proof of how much dedication you put into it and that you folded it by hand.
    It is hard to say why since there can be a couple of reasons for the uneven holes. But I love them!
    All the best,
