I have to admit that I’m having a lot of fun with my sourdough starter. There are all kinds of recipes out there that incorporate sourdough starter, I even found a recipe for chocolate cake with sourdough starter in it! Who knew? These baguettes were awesome. The fam said they tasted just like store bought, maybe even better!
2 cups flour
1/2 – 1 cup warm water
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup sourdough starter
1 Combine all ingredients in bowl and mix well.
2 Sprinkle work surface with just a couple of tablespoons of flour and knead dough slightly, just until it comes together. It should still be a little sticky.
3 Form dough into a ball and cut in half. Form each into a long baguette shape and place in floured baguette baker or on greased cookie sheet.
4 Cover lightly with damp towel and let rise until double in size, 3 – 6 hours.
5 Preheat oven to 425. Score baguettes 3 – 4 times with sharp knife or razor blade. Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown.
6 Let rest 20 minutes before slicing.
