A new mother.


The sour dough mother that my elder daughter gave me had to be binned as I had not fed it and it went mouldy.  Lots of sourdough was baked during the lockdown part of COVID but I had not made a loaf for a while and was disappointed when I discovered the starter had gone off. 

I went to the library to search for a simple recipe for a starter and found one in this book.


A very simple starter consisting :

2 teaspoons dried yeast (7gr)

1 teaspoon caster sugar (superfine)

1 1/4 cups lukewarm water (310ml)

1 1/2 cups plain (all purpose) flour (225gr)

UnknownThe starter is runnier than my original starter but it still works with the recipe I use.


This is the first loaf I made using the new starter.

I am delighted that the bread works just as well as it did with the original starter .

This is the page from the book if you want to try their bread recipe.

      I have only made this one loaf so it will be interesting to see if it works when I make a second loaf at a later date.
