    Cass81's Note:

    I adapted this recipe from a non-sourdough recipe by NZ cooking greats Alison and Simon Holst. It also works well using half white and half wholemeal flour. Note: the time this takes to prepare really depends on how active your sourdough is and you might choose to put your dough in a cool place to slow the rise and develop the sour flavour more, I like to take my time and start in the morning and bake it before dinner.
