Since 2014

One day in early January 2014 I saw on You tube showed how to make sourdough starter and bread so I started almost immediately to create my own sourdough starter. I am very happy to be able to bake my own sourdough bread. I always have problem digested commercial yeast bread, it gives me tummy ache every time I ate them. Now I have no problem with my tummy ache, it just gone!

Characteristics

Champei can rise double size in 2- 3h. She can gives good oven spring and nice crumb to the breads I made. I can as well use for making pizza dough, waffles and pancakes.
