Tom, Baker

No, I’m not referring to British actor Tom Baker, best known as the fourth incarnation of The Doctor. It’s me and I’m in baking mode.

A few days ago I made some sourdough starter. And fed it. And fed it. And fed it. Then I made a loaf of sourdough bread. It wasn’t great. It took me five attempts before I got a shining and sour loaf that looked good and tasted great.


That challenge over, I graduated to English Muffins. This time, the first batch turned out perfectly.


Now I’m wondering what to bake next. Any suggestions?

  1. Like to have english muffin recipe. Took tour of bakery in ferry building yesterday. Very educational. Think carlings. Their sourdough starter is older than the bakery.

  2. Will send it to you after I scan it. Glad to hear you’re having fun in SF. Did Jon every send you tour info? Besides making my own starter I bought some from King Arthur Flour that’s 240 years old. Doesn’t taste any different, though. Ha!
