I love new challenges. That was what always drove me during my career as a cyclist, and it´s what drives me now as well! When things get boring and I feel to comfortable I look and strive for changes.
My situation at the moment is very different from what I have been used to. To be a mum is the most amazing thing I have ever experienced but while Morris is still so little it´s a limit to how much that happens… Sleep, eat, change diapers, eat, sleep, change diapers, eat…. and so the day goes…
Even though I sort of have my hands full I felt like I wanted something to do on the side while spending so much time at home. So when my parents were here last week my dad brought “a baby” from his sourdough (my dad is sort of a sourdough master) Maybe that´s a bit cheating but I still need to keep it alive and get it to do the magic when baking with it…
My first attempt was a hazelnut whole-wheat bread with apricot.
Day one (in the evening) I used the sourdough base that I got from my dad and made the “pre dough”. I store it warm over night and hoped (fingers crossed) to wake up to a bubbly dough that was ready to bake with!
It worked and this is how I spent my day baking my first ever sourdough bread:
Sourdough bread is so tasty and it definitly feels like a better choice for a bread lover like me!
