show and tell

just a brief post to show off my very first sourdough loaf made today from my starter..i wasn't sure how to proceed once the starter appeared ready to go but joanne at zeb bakes very kindly held my metaphoric doughy hand particularly with regard to the levain..i used her cheese 'n' roasted onion bread but with no cheese and onion for two reasons..first i wasn't sure how the loaf would turn out and i didn't want to add to the waste if it was inedible..and secondly i wanted to see how the dough behaved, and taste the finished loaf, without embellishment..

the uncut version!



anyway i am reasonably happy with how it turned out and it is edible..it's not too dense and it tastes good with a hint of sourdoughness..i really want to make more..very soon.. jane
