Avicii’s Sourdough Bread

Hola, Como Esta’s Everybody!!!

Today I’ll be sharing my simple recipe for a Sourdough Bread using my Starter named “Avicii”. Since my introduction to this new adventure into bread making, I just can’t believe that I finally made a real bread from scratch. We just 3 ingredients, Flour, Water, and Salt. And the outcome is far better than any store-bought fancy bread. The crumb is soft and the crust is crispy, and it lasts several days without changing its quality.
