My First Boule

Ready to go into boule overnight

I did it!!! I finally used my sourdough starter for its intended purpose. The dough rested in the fridge overnight and I popped it into the oven at 6am this morning. Isn’t he cute? How can something so silly give me such pleasure. The recipe says it has to cool for 6-7 hours before cutting it. That was never going to happen. As soon as I finished walking the dog’s I grabbed my trusty bread knife, some unsalted butter, my jug of Maldon and tucked in. It was amazing. Lovely crunchy crust and that soft, airy and sour inside. Thank you Cathie Allan for sharing your starter with me.
