sourdough with starter from forum....

Dúnia's picture

Hello everybody!

I´ve recently got my starter set to bake, following the instructions from the forum "starter from scratch", and I wanted a recipe for my fist attempt to bake a sourdough bread.  If possible, a easy one, so that I have less chances to do it wrong..... Could someone give a suggestion?

(my english is a little rusty since I´m Brazilian , so please forgive me if I made some mistakes above)

Welcome Dunia,

If your starter is 100% hydration (equal grams of flour and water - and I assume it is since you followed the method from here) a recipe that I used with great success is 180g of starter, 500g flour and 320g water.  This is for a basic white loaf. If you are using wholemeal you will need to add more water depending on the proportion of wholemeal.

I would practice with the white bread flour first until you get your confidence up then the world is your oyster.

Keep on bakin'

Thank you, be sure I´ll test everything that I can, once I get the "mojo" of sourdough baking. Hahaha

Greetings Dunia,

Don't forget to add 10 grams salt to your dough when mixing all the ingredients together.  And your English

is perfect!  Happy Baking. M   I'm from North Central Iowa, USA.
