  • Help me find an old fashioned bread recipe

    My aunts used to make their own bread, heaven forbid you bought it at the store. They would make a "set" the night before, prior to going to bed. It was yeast, sugar, water, and maybe some flour. The next am they would get up and finish the dough and bake. One used potato water, I think the other just used tap water. Does anyone have the complete recipe for this fantastic bread? Thanks.

    What you're looking for is a 'sponge starter' - recipetips.com will tell you how to do it and probably has full recipes too.

      Look up sour dough recipes also. There are many here.

        Thank you so very much. I had some real old memories and a half way written recipe card and I think with the above information I have been able to figure out the whole thing.
