The Sourdough School: Sweet Baking is an indispensible guide to exploring the techniques and ingredients involved in successful sweet sourdough baking. A companion to the bestselling The Sourdough School, it focuses on sweet recipes that are gut-friendly and rely on natural sweetness where possible.
Classic recipes and new ideas for flavor combinations offer bakers an alternative method of baking cakes, tarts, pancakes, doughnuts, pannetones, pretzels - nothing is off limits. If it rises, it can be made with sourdough. Also featured are recipes for compotes and syrups to accompany your bakes.
Vanessa also explains how sourdough helps to maintain the health and diversity of your gut microbiome, which in turn improves mental health. New studies are unveiling links between the microorganisms in our gut and our mood and behaviour, and Vanessa is at the forefront of this research.
