Today I decided to try two new recipes with my sourdough starter.
The first is Sourdough in Five Minutes a Day – –
1 1/2 cup starter
2 14 cup water
In the bucket, combine
1 1/2 T yeast
1 1/2 T salt
5 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
** Note (3/31/12) This is looking good. It rose well and is in the refrigerator, fluffy and full of bubbles. Tomorrow I’ll try to bake a loaf.
The Second is No Knead Whole Wheat Sourdough
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 t salt
1/4 cup starter
1 1/2 cup water
Stir to combine, cover with plastic wrap and let set for 18 hours.
*** Note (3/31/12) This did not work well. It looked promising in the morning, but did not rise well in the proofing basket and stuck to the linen towel. It deflated just before I put it into the cloche and never really recovered. I ended up with a really flat loaf.
