Sourdough Bread

Sweet Soft Sourdough Bread

Recipe submitted by elMartino on February 22nd, 2010

The best bread I ever had! Just needs a bit experience in making sourdough but it can be replaced by dried sourdough which you can get online at and other places.

Prep time:   30 minutes
Cook time:   2 minutes
Servings:   1 loaf

10g Dry yeast
20g Wheat germ meal
40g Sugar
10g Salt
550g Wheat flour (high gluten)
375g Sourdough starter ( or 10g dried sourdough)
40g canola oil or butter
250ml Milk
50g Durum semolina flour

Mix all together.
Knead for about 10 minutes.
Let rest for 50 minutes and knead again for about 5 minutes.
Put the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Form the dough into a single round loaf. Place the loaf on a baking stone or baking sheet which has been lightly oiled and sprinkled with durum semolina flour.
Cover loaf and let rise in a warm place until nearly doubled in size, about 40 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 220°C.
Bake in preheated oven for 5 minutes lower temperature to 180°C and bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped.

      This is a really great recipe and I enjoyed the bread immensely. If you replace the sourdough starter with dried sourdough you will need to add moisture. I added about 100 ml lukewarm water to turn the bread in to a soft dough. I also let the yeast proof in warm milk for about 10 minutes. I always do this as it seems to produce the best rising breads.
