I’ve been using Amy Scherber’s directions for my sourdough starter for years now. But I have never actually made one of her bread recipes.
Decided I would bake a version of her Country Sourdough.
So I fed my white starter again yesterday and used some of the discard in her Levain.
According to the instructions, the levain should take around 8 hours to double.
I was planning on using it in the morning to make the dough.
But both my Starter and the Levain had doubled in 5 hours.
So I went ahead and started the dough and left if out on the counter overnight and the dough was ready to use around 4:00 AM.
Divided the dough in half and shaped a boule
and 7 mini baguette rolls.
The second dough went into the fridge for a cold fermentation.
