Here is the sourdough Alex and I made with our sourdough starter.  Isn’t it cute?  And it looks like a nice crusty sourdough round.  That is where the similarities stop.  It smells and tastes like a dense french bread.  Not that there is anything wrong with French bread, but that was not what we were aiming for.

For this loaf we…


  • 1 & 1/2 cups of sourdough starter
  • 2 cups of bread flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • water if needed
  • Combine all ingredients, except water, in the bowl of an electric mixer with a dough hook
  • Mix until dough is combined and no longer sticking to the bowl.
  • Add water if needed to crate a cohesive dough.
  • Remove from mixer
  • Place in lightly greased bowl.
  • Set aside to rise/double in size
  • Knead
  • Set aside to rise/double in size again
  • Bake in a 400 degree preheated oven for an hour
Now we are eating it all up and I’m contemplating trying to do the starter all over again with a different recipe.
