for 2 loaves of bread

800g flour
460g water
10g salt
320g starter


Mix and knead, don’t add much flour. Once the dough can stretch to translucent without tearing, it’s ready. Let proof for 3 hours. Then punch out the air and form into a ball, divide in half and place in a bowl layered with a tea towl and generously dust it with flour. Shape your dough into a compact ball. Place into bowl upside down and dust with flour, then cover with your tea towel. Let proof for 3 1/2 hours. Gently remove from bowl by dusting with flour and flipping upside down. Score if you want. Put into oven at a minimum of 230°C, bake for 30-35 minutes, or with Pyrex bake for 25 minutes, then remove lid and bake for an additional 25 minutes. (25+25 may result in burning your bread, try 20 minutes with the lid then remove the lid and bake an additional 10 minutes or until deep brown. A great way to tell if a bread is done is by checking the bottom and seeing how dark it is.)
