There was a a programme on Radio 4 recently which did make me laugh!
He is so simple to do, you only have to stir him once a day and feed him flour, sugar and milk a couple of times over a period of 10 days. These things take moments!
On the final day you feed him with the flour, sugar and milk then divide into 5 equal parts, keeping one you then give the rest away and so Herman lives on. I only managed to give 2 away but made 2 Herman cakes - a chocolate Herman with extra chocolate chip and a banana and chocolate chip. They were divine, seriously worth the 10 days of nurture!

So delish was the banana and choc chip one that I didn't get a photo.
The other one I am trying to keep in the fridge to slow him down. We shall see if he can keep going as long as M's sourdough bread starter as we've had it for a couple of years now and makes the best bread.
