IN THE OVEN
I finally was able to do a little baking yesterday, something new I lifted from Pinterest – a cream cheese pound cake that was out of this world, really. Although, with three sticks of butter, cream cheese and six eggs, it would be hard for it to be anything but delicious. I took the time to cut a slice to bring to work this morning as a treat with my coffee. Yum.
Here’s the original Pinterest post:
Technically this is not baking, but I got a sourdough starter going this weekend and I was right about the weather being good starter weather. I think this one is the fastest I’ve had one develop ever. Friday I started with the usual half cup flour and half cup warm water and by yesterday afternoon (Sunday) it was bubbly and had the typical sour smell. It should move into its beery, yeasty smell in the next day or so. Much as I love sourdough, this is my least liked stage. Until it matures, it smells like feet. I have to keep reminding myself that this part doesn’t last long. : )

See how nice and bubbly it is?
