Let the Baking Commence!


My sourdough starter is 14 days old and appropriately (hopefully!) active.  It's doubling with every feeding and some days wants to be fed twice a day.  So last night I pulled some out and mixed up a batch of hamburger bun dough.  It spent a nice, lazy night in the fridge to help develop flavor and is fermenting/proofing away on the counter as I type.  

My hope is to have buns for dinner tonight but I'm thinking that might be ambitious.  Worse case scenario we have something else tonight and enjoy them tomorrow.

Here's hoping for a successful sourdough attempt!
