This recipe is fairly hands-off - it's about 20 minutes of "attentive time," but the entire recipe will take approximately 15-20 hours from start to finish. If you're a new bread-baker, we recommend you watch our video where we teach you how to make this loaf!
Makes one medium-sized loaf of bread.
2 1/4 cups (254g) Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/2 cups (180g) Bread Flour or All Purpose Flour
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon (15g) discard (unfed) sourdough starter or fed (ripe) sourdough starter*
1 2/3 cups (376g) room temperature water
*If you don't have a dutch oven or other oven-safe, lidded container, you can bake the loaf on a preheated pizza stone, or a baking sheet. In order to achieve a nice crust on the dough, preheat an oven-safe pan on the bottom rack of the oven. When transferring the dough to the baking sheet or pizza stone, pour 2 cups of water into the preheated pan (make sure to wear oven mitts to avoid steam burns!). Then, bake the bread for 30-35 minutes.
