never made sourdough before- I need help!
I got a starter from a friend about a week ago. I fed it like she told me and left it out to do it's thing. It wasn't bubbley- is it suposed to be? Anyway, I tried to make sourdough bread a couple of days ago and my dough felt like playdough- it was really soft and squishy. It never rose, so I just had 2 lumps of nasty sourdough (I let my kids play with it and they had a lot of fun!).
I can make regular bread- but have never tried sourdough before. Do I need to start over with my starter? Is the dough suposed to be soft and sticky? Please help!!!
