Using three simple ingredients: water, flour and salt, Sourdough Baking with Kids teaches young bakers and their families about the science behind caring for active sourdough starter: how to create it, keep it alive, feed it when it’s hungry, and prepare it for baking.

Each recipe in this book includes different ingredients, colors, and techniques for parents and kids to craft their own bread loaves together. Along the way, families can pick up breadcrumbs such as changes to observe in the dough, fun facts about bread around the world, and little lessons on the patience and discipline behind the process.

Once the basics are under your belt, families can dive into kid-friendly breakdowns of sourdough loaf and sourdough discard recipes including yeast-based baked goods recipes.

Bake these and more fun and delicious recipes with your kids:
  • Easy Same-Day Sourdough Loaf
  • Purple Corn Sourdough Loaf
  • Sweet S’more Sourdough Loaf
  • English Muffins 
  • Chocolate Cherry Brownies
  • Apple Galette

Unplug from the world around you, open Sourdough Baking with Kids, and connect with your family in the kitchen through this exciting baking experience you can share with your kids.
