Sweet bread from two year old sweet bread starter

Post by Devo » Tue Dec 09, 2014 21:01

After 2 years in the deep freeze I got my sweet bread starter to kick in. Took two weeks and three feedings but now its bread time. Made 3 loafs this morning.

1 cup of bread starter out of the freezer

Mixing in the flour and sugar for a feed.

Got some bubbles happening, not enough. Needs more feedings.
Image

There we go now its kicking in.

Mixed up my dough last night

Found this sucker trying to run away the next morning. :grin:

That does look good Devo.

I did not know you could freeze starters, I keep mine going in the fridge.

Yes you can even dehydrate it if you keep the dehydrator temp 95 F.

Had to renew my starter so I made a loaf in my clay bread pan. Turned out good this time now that I have the temp and time pegged down. 350 F for 30 min. and than take the top off (remember to wear a mitt) for another 7 min. Done :wink:

Well just for sh*t and giggles I wanted to try this out for some time now. I had bought some of the black plastic stuff thats probably made from all the things that are not good for us. Its those BBQ mat's that are good to 500 F degrees. I bought them for doing shrimp on the gasser so they won't fall through the grate. Any ways turns out you can make bread on them. I had enough dough left over for two small loafs. I formed them into loaf as best I could and put some shredded cheese on top. They turned out pretty darn good.
