Dough: Everyday Sourdough Bread

Some white bread recipes make a loaf that is very similar to the commercially available bread. This is fine if you have children and want to send their PB&J's on bread that won't embarrass them. I am over being embarrassed by my bread. I like a little heft to my bread - even the white bread. This loaf is perfect - white, fluffy, a little sour, a little crusty. The perfect blend. The perfect way to use up some starter.

Everyday Sourdough Bread from The Wooden Spoon Bread Book

2 cup water
1 T yeast
2 T sugar

Stir in:
1 cup starter
3 cup flour

Beat. Cover. Let rise 1 hour. Stir down. Beat in:
2 T oil
2 t salt

3 to 4 cup flour

Knead. Shape. Rise. Bake 45-50 minutes.


  1. I LOVE bread baking, so glad I found your blog! I'm baking my way through The Bread Bakers Apprentice but I've taken a break since the yeast was killing me. Boo! I'm super excited to bookmark your recipes!

  2. Oh wow. THis looks wonderful. I have never made my own bread!
    Happy MoFo btw!

  3. I would like to know why some of the baking temps are not entered on some recipes. I would like to know the temp for the "Everyday Sourdough," thanks.

  4. Leamlass - I always bake bread at 350. Thanks for the comment! :)
