Sourdough Bread Recipe: How to Make It image

This no-knead sourdough bread is delicious. It has a crisp crust and distinctive sourdough flavor from the "starter" yeast mixture you stir up in advance. I was surprised at how easy it is! —Evelyn Gebhardt, Kasilof, Alaska

Total Time 01 hours 05 minutes

Prep Time 20 minutes

Cook Time 45 minutes

Yield 2 loaves.

Number Of Ingredients 8

1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
3-1/2 cups warm water (110° to 115°), divided
7 to 8 cups bread flour, divided
1/4 cup nonfat dry milk powder
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt


  • In a 4-qt. non-metallic bowl, dissolve yeast in 2 cups warm water; let stand 5 minutes. Stir in 2 cups flour until smooth. Cover loosely with a clean towel. Let stand in a warm place (80°to 90°) to ferment for 48 hours; do not stir. (The mixture will become bubbly and rise, have a "yeasty" sour aroma and change color from transparent yellow to gray over the course of 48 hours.) , Stir in milk powder, butter, sugar, salt, remaining water and enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. (Do not knead.) Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours. , Heavily grease baking sheets and sprinkle with cornmeal. Gently punch dough down. Turn onto a well-floured surface; divide in half. (If baking loaves one at a time, cover and refrigerate half of dough. Proceed with shaping and second rise when oven is ready so shaped loaf can be baked immediately after the second rise.) , With floured hands, gently move the dough in a circular motion. Use friction from the counter to stretch the surface and create a smooth top and round loaf. Quickly and gently transfer to prepared pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375°., With a sharp knife, make three diagonal slashes across tops of loaves. Immediately bake 10 minutes. Gently brush or spray loaves with cold water; bake 25-35 minutes longer or until golden brown.

Classic Sourdough Bread | Sourdough | Recipes | Doves Farm image

A sourdough loaf made with the simple basic ingredients of flour, water and a touch of salt. We used Einkorn to make the starter and ferment followed by strong white flour to make the dough. There are three distinct stages to making a sourdough loaf, the starter, the ferment and the dough itself. The starter will take 3 to 4 days to develop and then another 4–12 hours to be transformed into the ferment necessary to rise the dough. This bread is traditionally risen in a banneton which creates appealing lines on the baked loaf although it could be cooked in a regular loaf tin. The bread itself will have an appealing and complex sourdough taste and aroma. * Alternatively, use Organic Wholemeal Emmer, Organic Wholemeal Spelt Flour or Organic Wholemeal Rye Flour.* Before you begin to make your sourdough, we recommend reading our Guide to Sourdough Making alongside our handy Sourdough Starter Table.

Number Of Ingredients 15

8-10 tbsp Doves Farm Organic Wholemeal Einkorn Flour *
8-10 tbsp tepid water
50 g starter (from above)
150 ml tepid water
100 g Doves Farm Organic Wholemeal Einkorn Flour *
150 ml tepid water
300 g ferment (from above)
400 g Doves Farm Organic Strong White Flour
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp oil
flour, for dusting
oil, for tray


  • Starter – use this handy chart to help you keep track of your feeding times. On the first day, put one tablespoon of flour and one of water into a 500ml glass bowl and mix together. Wet a clean tea towel, wring it out well, lay it over the bowl and leave in a warm place for about 12 hours. After the 12 hours have passed, add another tablespoon of flour and another of water, mix together, cover with the damp tea towel and leave for another 12 hours. On day two (24 hours since beginning your starter), stir in a third tablespoon of flour and a third spoon of water, stir to mix, cover again with the damp tea towel and leave in a warm place for 12 hours. For the second feed of day two, add a tablespoon of flour and one of water, stir to mix, cover with the tea towel and leave in a warm place for 12 hours. For the first feed of day three (36 hours since beginning your starter), increase the feed by adding two tablespoons of flour and two of water, stir to mix. Re-damp the tea towel if necessary, lay it over the bowl and leave in a warm place for 12 hours. On the second feed of day three, add one tablespoon of flour and another of water, mix together, cover with the damp tea towel and leave for another 12 hours. At this point your starter should be bubbly and ready to create your ferment. If the starter is not showing bubbles, repeat the 12-hour feed and water routine, and ensure the starter is kept in a warm place. Ferment Once your starter is bubbly, stir it and measure 50g of the starter into a large mixing bowl. Pour 150ml water into the bowl and stir until lump free. Add 100g flour and stir to mix. Invert a larger mixing bowl over the dough bowl and leave in a warm place for 4-12 hours until bubbles appear. When bubbly, your ferment is ready to use (you can either dispose of any unused starter after bread making or keep and feed it regularly until your next baking session). 1st Dough Pour the tepid water into the ferment and mix well. Add the flour to the ferment and stir to mix. While the dough is still craggy and lumpy, stir in the salt. Using your hands gather everything together, gently pressing into a ball of dough. Knead the dough in the bowl for 100 presses without adding flour. Invert a large bowl over the dough bowl and leave in a warm place until double in size which may take 4–12 hours. 2nd Dough Dust the inside of the banneton liberally with flour. Run a spatula around the edge of the swollen dough. Pour the oil onto the dough and dip your fingers in the oil. Pick up the dough on the far side of the bowl, gently pulling and stretching it upwards then fold it forward onto the dough still left in the bowl. Turn the dough a quarter to the left or right. Repeat the action of lifting and stretching the dough then folding back onto itself five or six times, turning the bowl each time. Tuck the edges of the dough under to make a ball of dough. Transfer the dough into the floured banneton with the smoothest side down. Cover with an upturned mixing bowl and leave to roughly double in size, 2-12 hours. Baking Pre-heat the oven 20 minutes before you are going to bake. Rub some oil around the inside of an oven tray or insert a baking liner. Remove the upturned bowl and very gently tip the dough onto the oven tray. Bake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown. Transfer the bread to a wire rack and leave to cool.

Sourdough bread is made by the fermentation of dough using naturally occurring lactobacilli and yeast. As a result, the bread has a mildly sour taste not present in most breads made with baker’s yeast, and therefore better inherent keeping qualities than other breads due to the lactic acid produced by the lactobacilli.
