How To Make Your Own Sourdough Starter For a Herman The German Friendship Cake- Como fazer a sua primeira receita do Herman o bolo da Amizade

How To Make Your Own Sourdough Starter For a Herman The German Friendship Cake
It is not very difficult at all to make your very own Herman starter. The recipe and method included in the Herman Instructions will make enough mix for four starters, three of which you can give away, freeze or bake more cakes with.
What You Need
Firstly, make sure you have the following:
•5oz plain flour
•8oz castor sugar
•1 packet of active dry yeast
•Half a pint of warm milk
•2 fl oz. of warm water
What You Do
1.Dissolve the yeast in warm water for 10 minutes then stir.
2.Add the flour and sugar then mix thoroughly.
3.Slowly stir in the warm milk.
4.Cover the bowl in a clean cloth.
5.Leave in a cool dry place for 24 hours
6.Now proceed from day one of the 10 day cycle.

One thing to note, of which many people have asked, is the amount of yeast required. A packet of yeast is the equivalent of about 2 tsp. In the UK you will find small sachets of dry yeast in Asda for example. I use the 7g sachets that cost about 40p. Each one is about 2 tsp. in quantity.
When I made my starter this week I did notice that there were not as many bubbles in my mix as there had been in previous ones. The first starter I got given (see the homepage ) was nice and bubbly. I would recommend that you use a packet and a half, or around three tsp. of yeast in your starter.

Hello, my name is Herman.
I am a sourdough cake. I’m supposed to sit on your worktop for 10 days without a lid on.
You CANNOT put me in the fridge or I will die. If I stop bubbling, I am dead.
Day1: Put me in a large mixing bowl and cover loosely with a tea towel.
Day 2: Stir well
Day 3: Stir well
Day 4: Herman is hungry. Add 1 cup each of plain flour, sugar and milk. Stir well.
Day 5: Stir well
Day 6: Stir well
Day 7: Stir well
Day 8: Stir well
Day 9: Add the same as day 4 and stir well. Divide into 4 equal portions and give away to friends with a copy of these instructions. Keep the fourth portion.
Day 10: Now you are ready to make the cake. Stir well and add the following:
  • 1 cup of sugar (8oz or 225g)
  • 2 cups plain flour (10oz or 300g)
  • half tsp (teaspoon) salt
  • 2/3 (two thirds) cup of cooking oil (5.3oz or 160ml)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 cooking apples cut into chunks
  • 1 cup raisins (7oz or 200g)
  • 2 heaped tsp cinnamon
  • 2 heaped tsp baking powder

Mix everything together and put into a large greased baking tin. Sprinkle with a quarter of a
cup of brown sugar and a quarter of a cup of melted butter. Bake for 45 minutes at 170‐
180C. You may need to cover in tin foil and bake for a further 20 minutes to make you’re your Herman is done in the middle.
When cold cut into finger pieces. The cake freezes well and is also delicious warm
with cream or ice‐cream.
