A Non-Baker’s Guide To Making Sourdough Bread

August 25, 2019

Hey guys, salut it’s Alex! So it’s episode 3 of the Sourdough bread odyssey and today after many many days I’m finally releasing my sourdough bread recipe And I think it’s about time because you guys seems to be more than ready with your sourdough starters I try to be as thorough as possible however there we go there are things you need to experience yourself like example different levels of Stickiness of tackiness I can say the words and I will but you will understand ten times better Maybe a hundred times better by doing it Anyway, don’t be scared and let’s begin first off we need to wake up our Sourdough starter in order to make it more Lively and ready to bake bread if you don’t have one then watch the first episode of this sourdough bread series In a container are two tablespoons of Sourdough starter 100 grams or milliliters of Warm water 100 grams of bread Flour let it sit at room temperature or until it doubles in size I use my oven to rest and to proof doughs and Sourdough the temperature is off, but the light is on so it keeps it slightly warm Which is just perfect there are no drafts You know no shaking no nothing So [it’s] just the perfect Peaceful place for that sourdough is ready when it’s all bubbly and foamy and when it can pass safely the floating test In my case it takes four hours and 45 minutes What will make this recipe practical almost magical is that I use? nominee proportions one part sourdough to pass water three parts flour and that makes for [a] decently soft Hydrated dough, not like an insanely You know super hydrated shaggy mess, so in a large Bowl place 400 grams or milliliters of water 200 grams of Sourdough and 600 grams of bread flour and no Bread flour is not all purpose flour if you want to know more about [ash] [content] [protein] content all those stuff Watch episode number two of the sour bread series Now with your hands or a spatula get rid of any lumps, flour pockets, or puddles of water Let it rest in the bowl covered for 30 minutes up to one hour Don’t skip the resting period it’s crucial to allow flour and water to combine Properly [in] [fact] do not skip any step in this recipe because I already did I removed everything that was unnecessary so just, you know, be square! Add 12 grams of salt and a splash of water super important first it dissolves the salt Straight away and also it gives you that helpful extra boost in smoothness during the next step Get the dough out of the bowl and hard clean and non-Porous surface And I’m kneading the dough using a routine. It’s not complicated so just watch carefully And so let me just reenact this routine just for you to truly and deeply understand it Let’s pretend this is our dough turn grab turn Smash pull roll repeat the process for at least 10 minutes or until the dough feel smooth elastic tacky but not sticky that will give you a proper dough with a strong yet organized mesh of Gluten let it proof for four hours in warm environment While it’s slowly proofing inside Let me remind you that you can subscribe to my Youtube channel because I make new videos every week And if you can’t really expect classic recipe bam bang bang every time you can expect however delicious vibes creativity and inspiration Drop the dough to an unfloured countertop Sprinkle it with flour and flip it handling the dough can be sometimes a bit tricky, so always use quick and Confident moves to start building some tension fold the edges in the center until you get a rough ball Let it rest covered for 30 minutes during which it will flatten slightly into a pancake shape Now Sprinkle it with flour and flip it Keeping in mind the picture of an envelope fold the bottom to almost the top The right to almost left the left to almost right and the top to bottom Finally the bottom to top and roll it up that final shaping is very important because It’s giving strength Which is absolutely necessary to rise properly afterwards With the theme of the joint facing down use your hands or a flat knife and slowly but firmly push the dough in all directions You can definitely feel the surface tension building up Cover a bowl with a kitchen towel and dust it liberally with flour Bread flour works ok but if you mix it with the rice flour 50 50 it works even better Thus the dough ball as well and transfer it upside down in the basket meaning the seam is now facing up Time for the second and last proofing dust with flour cover and [then] cool it in the fridge overnight Proofing it in the fridge overnight is really helpful with the texture But most importantly it allows you to organize your schedule as you like which is super important Especially with the long lasting process like this one get the dough ball out of the fridge two hours before using it You know it’s ready to be baked when it’s slightly wobbly and when you touch it it gently bounces back To bake our bread we need a dutch oven or a big heavy pot with a lid It can store and release a lot of heat in a minimal amount of time which [is] essential to create steam inside the dough and make it puff and because I believe it also keeps all the Generated steam inside the pot. I know it’s hard to [believe] but it is that steam which is responsible for the Outrageous crispiness of the crust at the end Place it in [the] oven at 250 celsius or 480 Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes or until it gets blistering hot Gently flip the dough upside down on a floured plate you can dust some flour off if needed using a brush Now using proper gloves get the [dutch] oven out and place the dough inside as gently as possible without burning yourself Score it all the way through but not too deep with a razor blade at a very Low degree angle it allows the bread to open up properly to meet your job safer You can fix that blade onto a skewer, or onto Chopsticks I mean it depends if [you’re] a fan of Chinese takeaway or lebanese take away Just before putting that lid back on spray the inside with water a few times now whack this set up, in the oven as quickly as possible and Immediately turn the temperature down to 220 celsius or 430 Fahrenheit Do not take the lid off for the next 25 minutes it’s very important to get the oven rise now take the lid off and bake [it] furthermore for another 25 minutes also Even after 10 or 20 times getting that beautiful loaf of bread out of the oven is always always Magical a properly baked bread sounds hollow when you tap it let it cool down completely on a rack before slicing a soft Chewy Airy but intense Cream-colored crumb inside and a dark crispy caramelizing slightly sour crust Outside of course it is the perfect carrier for any tartine or open-faced sandwich But I strongly encourage you to enjoy it first naked. It’s a very sensual experience So guys that’s it. I hope you enjoyed this baking tutorial today. I mean as much as I enjoyed making that beautiful loaf of bread It’s super rewarding on a personal level if you did give it a like thumbs up and share that over your social Media You know Facebook Instagram Twitter Spread it like butter using the correct hashtag which is very appropriate at this time to be truly honest with you guys It hasn’t been always easy in fact. It’s been a roller coaster of mistakes and Whatnot, so if you do experience problems and failures yourself please by all means use the comment section down below and ask your Question you explain your problem to me into the community I will pick the most common and the most Interesting one and try to make like a Q&A episode on this sourdough bread series I will upload a printer-friendly Fully detailed PDf recipe on my patreon page for all of you who are financially supporting me out there Thank you very much But in the meantime go get your sourdough starter feed them right and start baking bye.

    So say I wanted to bake this the day that I made it- would that compromise flavor since it cannot ferment properly? Or would a warm environment also do the trick, allowing it to do its thang? My mornings are taken up nowadays with culinary school so i find my prime baking time to be 3 or 4 in the morning. Today at 3 am before work, I baked the dough I made yesterday and only slightly faltered. The Dutch oven I have is thin and does not retain enough heat, and I turned the oven down ultimately prolonging the rise and blister period, which I somehow slightly attained after realization with increasing the temp. My first time putting flaxseed and garlic into a loaf, too. 😅 now I know that I need the initial 500(or so) degrees and to turn it down after awhile. Your video is very descriptive, I appreciate it.

    Hi there. I love this recipe and it’s my go to! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched this video.

    I do have a question though! If I want to add ingredients to the dough for a flavored sourdough, at what step in your process would be the best place to do that? Today I am trying jalepeno cheddar and I added it after the overnight proof. So almost right before going into the oven. Is this the best time? Nervous to see how the loaf comes out… it’s baking now.

    I followed the recipe and the results were amazing. I highly recommend following him if it is your first time baking a sourdough bread.

    It has been a month and I have found that the bread is much cleaner and more enjoyable to work with if you extend the autolyse(first resting period before the salt is added) process to about an hour and a half – two hours. More time may help, but that is the amount that I have found to work well.

    If I wanted to make this bread in a loaf shape as opposed to a spherical shape as shown, would I need to change anything in order to do that, such as proofing time, resting time, etc? I like to toast mine in a toaster or make sandwiches and have more or less a uniform shape of slice throughout the whole loaf as opposed to having big slices in the middle of the loaf and tiny slices at the edge of the loaf as shown. Otherwise, it looks great. Thanks for the video.

    Thanks for the video! I think my bread is coming out flat because my starter isn't right. I think it is because I was using bleached AP flour. My question is this….the day I use my starter in the dough (starter that hasn't been stored in the fridge yet) do I still need to feed it in the morning and wait for it to rise or can I use it straight from the jar unfed?

    How come your starter is more runny? I use 100% hydration starter but mine is more dryer. Actually everyone on youtube teaches to make starter with 100% hydration but their starters are runny.

    Alex, thank you so much for this video. It still is the base for all of my bread baking. My question is, how does a steam oven compare to a Dutch oven? Would it be possible to have a nice crust without a Dutch oven when I use a steam oven? And should I stop the steaming halfway, just as you take away the lid?

    Fold outside to center
    Cover with plastic rest for 30 min.
    Fold like an envelope, top to bottom, bottom to top and rol over, push dough in all directions.
    Put a kitchen towel in a bowl and flour it. put the dough in seam on top
    Let it rest in fridge (8 – 24 hours)
    Get the dough out 2 hours before baking
    Preheat dutch oven 250C (~30min)
    Place the dough on a big circle baking paper, seam down. make a shallow cut on top.
    Put the dough in the dutch oven, and spray in some water.

    Hi Alex
    Made this loaf and found the hydration to be too much at 400mls of water plus the 200g sourdough. Do we not have to take into account the water ie. 100mls, present in the sourdough? This works out to be 86.6% hydration. Difficult to handle if nothing else.
    The crumb was fairly good but the loaf remained flatish. Very little oven spring. Please can you help, as I feel I am nearly there with my bread. Been baking sourdough now for 8 months, just found your site.

    Something has been bugging the living hell out of me I just tried to make some sourdough baguettes for fun a few hours ago and this is a problem I have always had with making bread it comes out gummy and undercooked I follow the recipe which is the one used in Alex's collab with Brothers Green Eats he didnt give an exact detailed recipe just "equal parts bread flour and wholeweat flour" I used half spelt as I didnt have wholewheat and I followed the recipe from there with a little guess work.

    I used 200 grams bread flour and 200 grams spelt flour, 260 grams water, 15 grams salt and 100 grams sourdough starter. Is it to do with hydration, amount of flour or oven temp ? I want to cook sourdough again and want to minimise the chance of gummy undercooked bread.

    My starter was more than ready, it floated and all (I cheered, it was pretty exciting) and I made it all the way through the first 30 minute rest and to the knead, but after that – my dough just stayed so sticky. I couldn’t get it for firm up at all. Anyone know what might have been the cause? I kept going, tried to push through just in case it still turns out but my dough is SO soft and barely holds a loaf shape – I’m baking it only out of morbid curiosity now but that sucker ain’t going to rise 😐 I feel so defeated.

    You say in the video 12g of salt, subtitle says 2g. Guessing it’s 2g but . . . . . . .

    I am thoroughly impressed with your expertise in the art. Having now seen how much effort is involved in making sourdough bread, I shall to continue enjoy that which others have prepared for me!

    Hi Alex! I still have a couple of niggling questions. 1. Why add the salt AFTER the dough was initially made? 2. What if I use a dough mixer instead of the hand-folding? THanks 🙂

    That is the most beautiful accent in English I've heard

    This dough is too difficult to knead. Now I realise I don't have all that time to do this ☺️😊

    the first time I attempted to make sourdough starter, I stupidly screwed the lid on the jar. Ironically, it literally exploded on New Year's Eve shortly after midnight. Starter dough EVERYWHERE in my kitchen. 😂😂

    Hi, were can we find the " how to make a starter" episode? And how to hydrate a dried piece of a "starter"?

    Third time following this so I get the feel, but my starter is never as liquid and bubbly as show at 1:39. bread turns out okay though

    As you have pickles on a sandwich have you tried fried chicken and pickles on a sandwich? The more juicy the chicken the better! It's a southern US comfort food.

    When the video started to play, I was like 'Oh this guy! Eeeks….is he going to swear all over the video again?' I actually watched this video with trepidation hahahha!!! But what a surprise, no swear words!! That's amazing. Thanks dude! Sure makes the video wonderful to watch without them. Nice!

    Hello Alex, thank you for explaining in very simple way😊 as you have mentioned in the video I have used 50:50 rice flour and all purpose flour. I want to know if the water measure will be 400 only or it differs as Iam using rice flour. The humidity here at my place is 84% to 90%. Also I want to mention that my starter is 15 day old. Thank you.
