A Great Tuesday!

My 7 year old daughter loves sourdough bread, and wanted to bake some all by herself today. I was not allowed to help. Turned out pretty good. She was so proud of herself! I’d say it’s a great day here  How is your Tuesday?

  1. Very impressed!! I watch a lot of shows on the Food Network, and my FAVORITE are the kids baking challenges. I’ve seen kids on there as young as your daughter baking some pretty impressive stuff!! It’s AMAZING to me what kids can do when mentored. So COOL! ♥️🤗

  2. Aw, wonderful! What’s the recipe. Do you think she’d share her secrets with us? I love sourdough bread but have never tried to make it myself.

    • It made me happy that she wanted to try to make it herself. We have a sourdough starter in the fridge, that we feed weekly. The start is made out of equal parts of a whole wheat flour, and water. You feed it with 1 cup of white unbleached all purpose flour, and 1/2 cup of water daily for two days, and then twice daily for three days in the beginning. Keep the starter at a kitchen counter the first five days, after that in the fridge. After the first five days you feed 1 cup of flour and 1/2-3/4 cup of water once a week. You can use one cup of starter instead of yeast in any recipe, the dough has to rest twice, once when you made the dough, and then after making loaves/buns. I usually let the dough rest at least 90 min the first time, longer is better, and one hour the second time. My daughter only added cold water, a pinch of salt, and flour until the dough felt smooth. She didn’t follow a recipe. I would love to hear if you try it! The starter only gets better the longer you have it in the fridge! Once in a while I switch up the flour I feed with, and try a different one.
