I have a sourdough starter that's been going for a little over a year, and I'm now getting good performance from it (good rises, and getting that desired, sour flavor). I've tried a lot of different recipes, and this simple one, is my own concoction I'm trying out today. We'll see how it goes!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. To the already proofed starter, add the flour and the salt.
  2. Separately, heat water slightly (40 secs in microwave), add honey to it, mix.
  3. Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients, mix. You'll have to adjust flour and water as needed to get the right dough consistency (not too tacky).
  4. Lay dough out on floured table, and knead for a few minutes (I like the fold-over method). At this point I separate into 2 different dough balls, seams rolled under.
  5. Smear oil in a large bowl (or 2 bowls, one for each dough), put the dough ball in and turn it over, so that it has oil on both sides.
  6. Cover dough and allow to rise until doubled in size (depending on your starter, this could take 6-8 hrs or longer).
  7. Once doubled in size, punch down, shape into loaf or add to greased loaf pan, and allow dough to rise again til doubled (this could take several hours).
  8. Preheat oven to 375. Bake loaves for approximately 35 minutes (that's when mine are usually ready). Bake a little longer if you desire for bread to be less tender.
