sourdough bread

Well, you didn't think I would show you how to make starter 
without showing you how I make the bread did you?
Of course not!!

1 cup starter
2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tbs salt
1 cup water

after kneading dough, divide into 3 strips

start braiding
(looks kinda like a creature huh...)

fold the ends to stick

place in bread pan

let rise overnight

optional: I brush with a coat of egg
for a brown crispy crust

bake for 30-45 minutes/350 degrees
let cool on rack


I really enjoy baking bread. The smells and warmth just screams home.
Nothing says love, like fresh baked homemade bread for your family!
