These days during the pandemic – it’s almost impossible for me to find my favorite brand of dry yeast so I rely on sourdough starter only. To be honest, I’m so happy with what I got with sourdough – from pizza to “hot dogs” or cinnamon “donut”, and even the croissant. During the preparation of these stuffs I learn a lot about the sourdough starter, hope it will help me to improve my skill with this natural yeast!
Preparation for “hotdog” starter
- Sourdough starter 65 gr.
- Water 65 ml.
- Bread flour 65 gr.
Mix all together and leave it at the room temperature (25-30oC) for at least 12 hours.
Preparation for the hotdog dough with sourdough starter
- Bread flour 530 gr.
- Milk 280 ml.
- Salt 10 gr.
- Sugar 50 gr.
- Butter 100 gr.
- Egg 100 gr. (2 pcs)
- Sourdough starter 195 gr.
After a night in the fridge, take the dough out, roll it out and cut into small pieces (about 70 gr. per each) and roll it out again into small square, fill it with cheese and sausage…
With this sourdough dough recipe I’m still preparing the cinnamon rolls and…it’s so good! It’s moisture, soft and flavorful.
I’m so excited when I don’t need the dry yeast anymore, I just keep my sourdough starter in the fridge, feed it once in a week. Whenever I need to bake, take it out from the fridge one or two days earlier, feed it and it’s ready for me to prepare anything next day! Now I’m going to try the croissant with sourdough, hope to share with you in my next post! Cheers!
