Sourdough Morning Bread

sourdough morning bread
I have been quite busy finishing a digital marketing course so I haven't had as much time to blog as I would like to have. And when you are busy you appreciate more when you have time off to relax and enjoy. That's how I feel about weekends, I just love that morning coffee and good bread. Oh how I love bread. It takes time to make your own bread, it's not necessarily difficult but it takes time and most of the time is in proofing. This recipe is fairly easy and can safely say that this is the best morning bread that I have ever made. You just prepare your dough the night before and let it proof during the night. Which means you will have freshly baked bread with your morning coffee.
