I have been wanting to have a go at making sourdough bread for ages but thought it would be too difficult. I treated my self to Paul Hollywood’s How to Bake book and followed his recipe for the sourdough starter and basic sourdough loaf and I’m glad to report that it was entirely successful. My second batch of loaves are proving as I write and I think they will be even better than the first.
I’m not going to give the recipe here but just some photos of the work in progress and finished loaves. If you have never made sourdough give it a try; it is immensely satisfying and you get great tasting bread!
