    Temperature probes for cakes

    I have this exact problem! I'm a lefty too, and I always go to use the probe the wrong way. It's a little annoying, but it's such a good bit of kit that I don't mind too much. Those photos are beautiful! What a stunning place to live :)

    Sourdough beginner...a few clarifications (help!)?

    I used this guide for mine, and it worked really well: I used organic wholemeal rye flour for mine. As I understand it, the spores come largely from the flour which is why I used organic. I've only made one...
