Wild thing, you make my loaf spring

Ok, first an admission, I stole the post title from the lovely people at the real bread campaign. But I’m not sorry, it’s an awesome title and I just had to use it. You see this month is officially Sourdough September, Britain’s first celebration of the mighty Sourdough.

There seems to be weeks and months dedicated to all sorts of random causes these day but finally one that is truly a worthy cause.

You all know how much of a fan I am of making bread with those magical little natural yeasts and if you follow me on Instagram you are no doubt already bored of my regular loaf photos at the weekend.

Once you get into the routine of feeding your starter and making a loaf every day or every weekend it’s really the easiest thing and with just 15 minutes work in the evening you can have an awesome fresh loaf the next day.

I’ve blogged a few times about making Sourdough and you can find my recipe here which is taken from the Fabulous Baking Brothers. There seems to be a few variations out there on making a loaf but this one has worked well for me and is simple to use.

So why not join me in celebrating Sourdough September and get your own starter bubbling away in the kitchen? Once you start you really won’t regret it and I can assure that a fresh Sourdough loaf makes the most amazing bacon sandwich. If I can help at all then let me know. If you do make a loaf I’d love to see some photos too.

You can also get more information on making sourdough and finding bread making courses near you by checking out the real bread campaign website here.

I’ll leave you with some bread porn as inspiration.

    Incredible bread! I’ve never made sourdough bread before, and this really is the inspiration I need to give it a go. I shall have a look at your recipe now…
