Prep Time 2 days
Cook Time 1 hour
Servings 1 loaf


Step 1

  • 1 cup sourdough starter
  • 150 grams whole wheat flour
  • 150 grams filtered water

Step 2

  • 300 grams whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon vital wheat gluten
  • 150 grams filtered water


Step 1

  • Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  • Cover and let sit for 4 hours.

Step 2

  • Add all ingredients to sourdough mixture from Step 1.
  • Knead by hand on a floured surface for 20 minutes or with a stand mixer with dough hook for 10 minutes.
  • Coat the dough with a little olive oil, cover, and let sit until doubled in size (6 to 12 hours).

Step 3

  • Punch down dough and let sit 4 minutes.
  • Shape into a loaf and place on an oiled or lined baking stone or sheet.
  • Cover loosely and let sit for 8 hours.

Step 4

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Bake until browned (about 1 hour).
  • Let cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes. The longer it sits, the more sour it gets.


After removing 1 cup of starter, use this opportunity to feed the remainder and put it in a clean container.
