Day 3. I fed my starter last night, after 30 hours. I discarded half of it and fed it as I found in the online recipe, 1/2 cup flour and a little bit above 1/4 cup water. Then it just, exapanded! It is now 4x the starting volume! Now, I don't know what to do. Original recipe said it should be ready in 5 days after it doubles in volume after daily feedings. But, it doubled in volume yesterday. And now, it is like this. I knew it would probably rise faster because it is warm in the Philippines, but... Oh wow. **I don't keep it by the window, I keep it on top of the cabinet. I just placed it there so I can get a better light for the photo. #baking
I wanted to make a simple white bread, but I realized that even though I have all-purpose flour, I only have muscovado sugar, so the bread would still be brown. Lol. Then I added some dried cranberries and white chocolate chips, just because. I adjusted the milk, hoping it would be more cake-y. We'll see. I hope our little one eats it, she was not a fan of the apple corn bread, she does not like rough textures the past few days. She ate a bit of the commercial white bread from the main house though, so we'll see how this one will turn out. #baking
Goodness, look at that yeast culture. Is that the yeast? Is it alive? The noontime heat made it double in size! I know I'm just supposed to leave it alone, but I am fascinated! #baking
Yeast culture day 2. Are those bubbles slowly showing up? According to instructions, I should feed it tomorrow. Let me know what you think! This is the first time I am doing this. #baking
Hoy Portia, akala ko ba absolute emergency food yung instant noodles? Bakit kakalahati na yung 10-pack? Hoy konsensya, napagod ako maglaba! Gusto ko ng noodles! Eh asan yung iba pa? Lulusot ka pa! Lol. Kaya ayaw ko mag-stock ng ganito eh.
A new weekly ritual... Kudos to TFMs who does this weekly from the beginning. It is exhausting. Don't look too closely as there are food stains that I am leaving for the sun to take care of. Lol.
