German Friendship Cake and Sourdough Giveaway!

My healthy 7 day old Herman.
I have recently become parent to a sourdough culture called Herman. He will, given care and attention grow up to become a delicious german friendship cake.   I know this because I have had the pleasure of raising a Herman from gloop to cake before, and trust me, he grows up to be a moist, tasty cake that is a King amongst noms.  First, however, comes the raising. Literally.  You must stir your Herman daily, and feed him milk, sugar and flour on the days indicated on the simple instructions that come with him, and watch him grow and get more bubbly as the sourdough starts to make your kitchen smell more and more like a brewery.  On the 9th day of Herman he will require feeding again before you set about the best part of getting a Herman – giving him away again! Once you have fed Herman, you split him into four and spread the german Herman love by giving away three of them to your friends.  Then, on the 10th day, you bake! But more on that on Monday.  In the mean time, if you’d like to know more about Herman he has a website, and I have a few Hermans looking for homes if anyone would like to claim one.
