Well…I did it. I followed along in my Sourdough A to Z eBook and here is the bread I got. Never mind that it took my chilly kitchen twelve hours to raise my dough. That’s all a part of the sourdough bread making process – waiting. Just in case you were wondering, waiting for bread to rise is not very labor intensive. I just started my bread first thing in the morning, did a bunch of other work all day while I left my bread dough alone, and finished it last thing at night. The next day we ate bread. Easy!
I was very pleased with how well the bread sliced. It was a little more dense than we prefer. I think that as I get more used to making this bread, I’ll get a better feel for working with it and I’ll be able to get it to the consistency that we like. Still, within two days, these two loaves were gone. :)
What I’m even more excited about are the Sourdough English Muffins I made from the Sourdough A to Z eBook!!! These could NOT have been any easier to make and my family devoured them! I made enough that we now have some in the freezer for this week, which is an added bonus. I’ll for sure be making these English Muffins on a regular basis. They are fantastic!
I know I already showed you the sourdough muffins I made last week, but they wanted me to show you again so they wouldn’t feel left out of this sourdough posting experience. These muffins were also super easy to make, and my family loved them!
