Is West Hills Sourdough like a San Francisco Sourdough loaf?
As a Bay Area native, I grew up on San Francisco Sourdough and I love it! But why try to create something that already exists and is pretty darn close to perfect?
I’ve added my own spin on sourdough. West Hills Sourdough is intentionally tight, dense, springy, chewy, and of course...deliciously sour.
(See pictures below of what West Hills Sourdough looks like fully baked.)
To be honest, when I first started working on the formula, I set out trying to make a San Francisco Sourdough, and I failed over and over… Why? I live in Los Angeles now, and we have a different climate not to mention different water, amongst other things.
When I realized that, I switched things up, and after some trial and error, came up with a new formula for sourdough that is uniquely delicious. So I wanted to share it with the world!
Depending on where you live, you may find you want to make minor adjustments to things like the recommended amount and temperature of water you add, and the bake time or rest time. But one thing’s for certain: Using West Hills Bread Co. kits, you’re going to have a great time making -- and an even better time eating -- your very own home-baked sourdough bread!
