Herman the German Friendship Cake
I came home from a weekend away in Napier with an ice cream container full of Herman starter. If you haven't been introduced to the wonder that is Herman, read all about him here.
I've lovingly stirred and fed him, and finally he was ready for baking. I choose, from the above link, a Chocolate and Orange flavour.
It was a strange mix to be working with, and once cooked it resembled more of a giant cookie than a cake.
It was different - nice, with quite a strong sourdough flavour. The hubby must of liked it as he ate half of it in one sitting. He does like sourdough though. The kids ate it, and as I always say that is a good sign!
I haven't shared my Herman starter yet with anyone, so have plenty more to experiment with.
