A visitor from Germany
Well, not an actual cake but a sour dough mix that will eventually, we hope, become a cake.
My maternal grandfather was German so maybe I should have known about such things, but no.
The sour dough mix goes through a ten day process during which needs to be stirred and have food added.
We are up to day five and so far I have been able to keep up with instructions.
On day nine I am supposed to divide it into four segments and share three with friends and make a cake from the remainder on day ten.
Have you ever heard of a Herman the German Friendship Cake? It would be a bit hard to share portions with my blog followers but you can find out heaps about this fun idea on the Herman the German website.
Lots of recipes, ideas, starter recipes, including gluten free.
