ingredients

directions

  • Measure the culture into bread machine pan.
  • Add remaining ingredients, with flour being last.
  • Set machine for dough cycle and start.
  • At end of cycle, remove dough from machine and shape into desired loaf.
  • Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled--this can take as little as 1 hour or several hours, depending on what type of starter you use and how active it is.
  • Top of loaf can be slashed at this stage, if desired.
  • Uncover and bake at 375 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes, or until done.
  • Remove from baking pan and cool on wire rack.
  • NOTE: I don't let my dough rise in the dough cycle; I just remove it after the kneading is completed and shape my loaf, then let loaf rise.

    Can I let it rest 8 hours after taking it out of the bread machine before baking it?

    Should the flour be sifted before measuring if it is not pre-sifted?

    I made this bread with the following changes: I used only whole wheat flour, used honey rather than sugar, and coconut oil rather than butter. The first time I used 450 g w.w. flour, and it was very dry. I had to add more liquid to form the loaf. The second time I cut back on the amount of flour, added just a little extra liquid and so far it looks fine. The first time, once I added the liquid, I let it knead and rise in the bread machine, then put it into an oval banneton. I let it rise in the banneton on the counter (cool kitchen) for about two hours, then baked it. It came out light with an even crust. Very good. I find sourdough baking to be a bit of an art rather than a science. The second time I left the refreshed sourdough starter for too long and it had deflated when I got around to using it, so we'll see how this works out.

    This turned out amazing!!! I was skeptical because my bread machine had to work a little harder than I'm used to. I wondered if there was enough moisture. But, I worried for nothing because it is a perfect loaf of bread. I can slice super thin slices without it falling apart, too. Thanks, Donna!!
