Easy Homemade Sourdough Bread

homemade sourdough bread recipe



  • About 4 dl of sourdough starter
  • 3.5 dl water (350 g)
  • 10 dl all purpose flour (600 g)
  • 3 tsp salt (18 g)



  1. Mix sourdough starter, water, flour and salt in a bowl. Stir until the dough comes together. Cover the bowl with a lid or plastic wrap and let it rise for a long time. Exactly how long is hard to say, it depends on how lively the sourdough is and how hot it is, but somewhere between 3 and 6 hours. After about 1 hour of fermentation, you can stir the bowl a few times. It gives the dough even better elasticity.
  2. When the dough has risen properly (it probably won't rise to double its size, but it should be clear that it has risen), take it out onto a floured baking table. Shape into a round loaf by folding the edges in towards the center and turning it upside down. Flour the top thoroughly. Place a kitchen towel in a colander and sprinkle some flour over it. Place the dough smooth side down in the colander and fold over the kitchen towel or use a proofing basket if you have one.
  3. Let the bread rise once more, either at room temperature (and then it can take between 1 and 3 hours) or in the refrigerator (8–12 hours).
  4. Heat the oven to 250 degrees. Turn the dough over in a cast iron Dutch oven, make some cuts in the dough with a knife or make some cuts with scissors. Put the lid on and place the pot in the oven. Bake for 25 minutes with the lid on and another 25 minutes with the lid off. 
  5. Take the bread out and carefully turn it out of the hot pan. Leave to cool on a wire rack.

Finally, there are many different ways to bake sourdough bread, this is just one. Experiment and find a way that suits you.
