First batch of Sally Sourdough...

I chose to mix the dough in my stand mixer as its a large mix - 1kg flour, 300gms of starter and 550gms water.
~
It only got mixed so it just comes together as a shaggy dough...
~
...then it rests for 30 minutes.
~
Once rested, I gave it a quick mix for a minute then tipped it on the floured bench to form into a ball.
~

I put her to rise in my big mixing bowl...
~
I bought a shower cap to cover the bowl, saving on lots of cling wrap.
~
I'll be back this afternoon to see how Sally is behaving.  She smells nice snd yeasty so I hope she has doubled in size by this evening.
~
Cheers - Joolz xx

  1. I love that you have called her Sally and I'm interested to follow this and see how your loaf turns out. My attempts at sour dough are hit and miss, sometimes a winner and other times a brick.

  2. The shower cap is a super idea!! I could use this method on my no-knead bread dough
