no yeast in the recipe?
I am a brand new baker. As in, I've never baked more than pies (which I'm really good at.)
I LOVE SOURDOUGH, and my entire family is from San Francisco. Living in Oregon for 10 years now, I really missed good sourdough so decided to learn how to do it myself.
So I have a sourdough starter going and have read the pages at sourdoughome.com over and over and over. I'm about to bake some Black Canyon Sourdough and I realized that the recipe doesn't call for yeast, just the active starter. Is this really enough?
I am not about to change the recipe, after all- what do I know?
But I'm quite perplexed by the thought that my starter has enough activity to make my bread.
