Or are you nervous about using sourdough leaven?

The secret is all in the planning, and understanding the vital relationships between time, temperature, ingredients and techniques. The great news is, we've done all that for you! Effortless Artisan Breads is a complete, standalone course to help you make great bread a part of your life.
Through this course, you will learn:
how to make different types of artisan bread according to how soon you want to eat it!

how to do all this with just 5 minutes hands-on effort, letting nature and time do all the rest for you.
In the core of the course, you will see exactly how to make a Daily Sourdough, by mixing one big batch of dough at the beginning of the week and using your fridge to slow down the rise, so that you can get out some dough and bake a fresh loaf/baguette/rolls every day.
If you are nervous about sourdough, don't worry; you will also learn how to make a Daily Yeasted Bread, using instant bakers yeast. Then, once you've got the hang of it, you can move on to the sourdough version.
