Spelt flour (an ancient grain that would have been around in Roman times.)


Sourdough starter (“the monster”)

The Monster

This is what makes the bread rise

I put in all the ingredients then I stirred it all around to mix it into a ball of dough.

This is me kneading the dough.

Here is the dough ready to prove in the airing cupboard. The warm air makes it rise.

I checked it on Saturday evening after about ten hours.

The monster has done it’s work.

The dough has proved and it’s full of air.

Ready to go in the oven!

It is finally ready to be eaten! It has taken more than a day.
