Sponge Starter


1 cup lukewarm water

1/2 to 1 cake of dry yeast
(1/2 to 1 pkg of active dry yeast-not rapid rise)



Mix the yeast and water together and let stand for 20 min.

Add enough flour to make a stiff drop batter.

Beat until smooth then cover and let sit in a warm place overnight until light and bubbly.

Use as a base similar to sour dough starter.
