First sourdough loaf

7 July 2007

This sourdough bread is delicious! Really, it's got a lovely depth of flavour unlike plain yeast breads. And it's nicer than the sourdough we used to buy at the bakery.

I cooked it in my cast iron dutch oven, which is why it's a flattish round
shape. Next time I'll use something else to give it more height. I'm really looking forward to making more sourdough now and to improve on this first one. But I must say, the flavour of this loaf is excellent.
