A few weeks ago I shared my Amazing Sourdough Biscuit recipe, another favorite way to use my sourdough starter is making bread.
This recipe is very simple and you can add all sorts of things to the batter to change the taste. The recipe is adapted from a recipe I found on the King Arthur website.
Rustic Sourdough Bread
1 cup of fed sourdough starter
1 ½ cups of lukewarm water
2 tsp instant yeast
1 Tbsp sugar
2 ½ tsp salt
5 cups all purpose flour
2-3 Tbsp Tuscan Sunset seasoning from Penzey Spices
Combine all the ingredients and knead to form a smooth dough. I used my Kitchen Aid mixer. Place the dough in a bowl, cover the bowl and allow the dough to double in size, about 90 minutes.
Gently shape the dough into two logs about 10 inches long.
Place on a lightly greased parchment-lined baking sheet. I used my baguette pan.
Cover and let rise until very puffy, about one hour. Toward the end of the rising time, preheat the oven to 425. Spray the loaves with lukewarm water. Make two fairly deep diagonal slashes in each loaf. I made several slashes in the long loaves using a serrated bread knife.
Bake the bread for 25-30 minutes; until it’s a very deep golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool on a rack.
Couldn’t wait, while it was still warm I enjoyed a slice with some butter! (Well perhaps too much butter!) Yum!
