Everyday sourdough

A slightly relaxed approach to a sourdough, but works for us...

Makes 2 loaves - this is easiest to cook in 2x loaf tins to start with until consistency is apparent


100g rye sourdough starter

600ml water

800g flour - varying proportions - for example, 500g strong white, 200g wholemeal, 100g mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, linseed)


Mix this all together; the dough will be very wet. I use a spoon for this.

Do not knead; the dough is too wet.

Leave to rest for 1-2 hours.

Transfer to tins, or (if feeling confident) shape into banneton.

Leave to prove for 8-12 hours (until doubled).

Bake at 220-240C for 35 mins.
