No, not my daughter (who isn't 1 til next month).

My sourdough starter.

It's a year today since I made my first loaf using it, so I made a birthday loaf!

Sadly mine is still lurking in the freezer! One of these days I will resurrect it.

Me too, but I can't find it !!  ponder  roll_eyes  I need to sort out all those little frozen parcels that slip through all the crevasses between bigger packs. I need to put them all together in one container so they are easy to find.

I would have put candles on top if I had time... I mixed the dough before work and baked it last night, after 12 hours rising (knocking-back twice). Trouble is, we've eaten half of it already i_am_hungry

Emma did complain last week that I remembered the anniversary of the sourdough bread but not the anniversary of us becoming a couple. But in all fairness, she forgot our anniversary too.

also, has anyone noticed that with sourdough you don't need to add as much salt to the mix? I suppose this is probably because the dough itself has more intrinsic flavour. With the little'un, I've been reducing the amount of salt when I cook and usually only put half the amount of salt in breads and I haven't had any problems with bland tasteless bread.

My sourdough is a bit hit and miss, but it's getting there. Bought hubby a beer the other day, only so I could use some of it in the sourdough (where's the angelic icon) medicine
