      1. Hi, what type of corn meal did you use? Or did you use corn four? My corn flour is white not yellow.

  3. Hi there!
    I just made this and I loved the process and texture. But I find that the end product tastes too sour. Is there a way to do a sweet sponge that’ll cover that sourdough taste? I love the taste of sourdough but not in this. Thank you!

    1. Hi!
      Thanks for your feedback, sorry it came out sour.
      Maybe your starter is more acidic. Then next time increase the amount of baking soda. It should help.
