Equipment

  • Dutch oven
  • Large bowl
  • Parchment paper
  • Sharp knife or bread lame

Ingredients
 

  • ¼ cup sourdough starter ($0.01)
  • 1 ½ cups water ($0.00)
  • ½ cup soft whole wheat flour ($0.09)
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour ($0.08)
  • 2 ½ cups white bread flour or unbleached AP flour ($0.17)
  • 1 ½ tsp sea salt ($0.02)

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl, mix ¼ cup sourdough starter with 1 ½ cups of water and 1 ½ tsp sea salt.
  • Mix in flour and other optional add-ins like seeds or olives until well combined, about 2 minutes.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap or a plastic bag and let the dough rise at room temperature for 18-22 hours, or until it reaches almost double the size.
  • Once the dough has risen enough, sprinkle the top and cover your hands with more flour. Stretch and fold the dough around from the bottom to the top about 5-6 times.
  • Form the dough into a ball about the same size as the dutch oven you're going to bake it in, and transfer it to a parchment-lined bowl approximately the same size. Cover it with a clean towel and let it rise for another 2-3 hours.
  • Preheat your oven to 450°F, and place the dutch oven inside to warm it up.
  • Once your oven is ready, transfer dough and parchment paper to your dutch oven and score the top of the dough with a very sharp knife or razor blade to let steam escape. You can also sprinkle the top with more flour for decoration.
  • Bake sourdough with the lid on for 35 minutes. Then, remove the lid and bake for another 15-20 minutes until the top is golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven, and let the loaf cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.

Notes

  • It's best to find someone who can share their starter with you since sourdough starters can be tricky to figure out at first.
  • For a softer bread and crust, use all soft whole wheat flour instead of both soft whole wheat and regular whole wheat.
  • Try using add-ins like nuts, seeds, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, or dried fruit!
