Day 2 of the "I too can bake bread!" challenge- Frothy and bubbly

WOW! My starter just took off, and it looks like I am WAY ahead of what most of you will be at right now. 

For the next few days (anywhere from 2-7 days), you will be repeating the following steps in order to catch up. Please do not move on to the baking segment until your starter looks frothy and bubbly.

For Day 2, you will need the following: 

  • 1/2 cup of purified water
  • 1/2 cup of Bread Flour or All-Purpose Flour (Not self-rising)
  • Something to stir your starter with (chopstick, spoon, but please no metal)

Add the additional flour and water to your starter and stir to combine. This is considered "feeding" your starter. Cover loosely with a lid again, stirring occasionally throughout that day.

At this point, you will have about 2 cups of starter. The rule of thumb is to double your starter when you "refresh" or "feed" it, and since we added a half cup, that is considered as doubling our starter.

Stay tuned in for Day 3.

Until next post,
