5.0 out of 5 stars Baking with Sourdough February 20, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you aren't familiar with sourdough this basic cookbooklet will introduce you to just how versatile sourdough starter really is!
I have personally tried many of the recipes in the booklet to great success. The sourdough chocolate cake recipe is especially good.
Be prepared for the most moist chocolate you have eaten!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sourdough starter recipes May 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book if you are a novice at working with sourdough starters. I have learned so much! The bread recipe is excellent too! and she teaches you how to use "starter" in other recipes! I have learned to use my "starter" in a lot of things! Cakes, cookies, breads, muffins, etc...

4.0 out of 5 stars Looking for a beginner's book on baking with sourdough? November 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was looking for a book to use as an introduction to baking with sourdough, and this book definately fit the bill! I especially enjoyed the introduction explaining the history of sourdough. The recipes were just what I was looking for - simple enough for a beginner, but offering variations for when I get more adventurous. The only draw back - no photos.

2.0 out of 5 stars not much to it January 31, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The author tries to convert quick-bread recipes using sour dough starter. Yes, she's "baking with sourdough", but the actual sourdough recipes in this booklet are the standard 3 or 4. Everything else is baking powder/soda recipes in which she uses some sourdough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Information in Small Book! November 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great little book with the most information I have found on the versatile sour dough! This is an excellent series where you buy just the topic you are interested in. I have others, Braiding Rugs: A Storey Country Wisdom Bulletin A-03 and Making Natural Milk Soap: Storey's Country Wisdom Bulletin A-199 (Storey Country Wisdom Bulletin) and they are both also very informative and well written. Recommended for your kitchen shelf cook book collection!
