  • 1.0 pk Active dry yeast
    2.50 c Warm water
    2.00 c Sifted flour
    1.00 tb Sugar

    Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup of the warm water in a deep glass or

    container. Stir in remaining warm water, flour and sugar. Beat until
    smooth. Cover with loose fitting cover. DO NOT REFRIGERATE! The
    starter requires 10 days for fermentation as follows:

    DAYS 1, 2, 3 and 4:... Stir batter DAY 5:................ Add 1 cup
    each milk, flour, sugar and stir DAYS 6, 7, and 8:..... Stir batter
    each day DAY 10: ............. Add 1 cup each flour, sugar, milk;

    The batter is ready to use.

    This makes 3 cups batter to use in the recipes. If you want to you
    may pour 1 cup batter each into 3 containers and give 1 or 2 away.

    Save 1 cup to begin process all over again OR you can use all 3 cups
    batter for the reci
