Miss Cheerilee

Since 2017

I started baking to save money, then found out home baked bread was delicious. Then found out that I like baking. My brother in law, who is a chef, told me about sourdough. I’ve had a few failed starters before Miss Cheerilee, but the bread has always been delicious, no matter the structure. Now I mostly bake sourdough for my family, friends, and customers.

Characteristics

The starter smells pleasantly sweet. It is a thick, liquid consistency, with lots of bubbles. Bagels and sourdough loaves have a slight, noticeable sour tang. The results are a chewy interior, no matter what I’m making. Loaves have a tasty, crunchy exterior. The boules have a waxy, bubbly interior.
