Learn to bake sourdough bread - the best bread in the world!

Oat & Honey Soft Sourdough

I have a new recipe called Oat & Honey Soft Sourdough. It is a one day sourdough that is mixed, proofed and baked in one day. I baked it up in bread pans and freeform Artisan style both and it came out great each way.

I used a vigorous starter and bulk fermented for four hours:

After four hours bulk fermentation, I shaped the loaves, putting two into bread pans and two into banneton baskets:

proofing

I then proofed two more hours :

The dough was ready to bake. I baked the bread in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes turning halfway:

Here is a closeup of the crumb:

I haven’t sliced a freeform loaf yet to see the crumb, I will post later when I do. The bread came out wonderful, soft, terrific flavor.  The first loaf was sliced and eaten before I could take too many pics of the four loaves together, with my teenagers gobbling as fast as they could. According to them this Oat and Honey Sourdough is “Awesome”.

I will be posting this recipe in the Special Recipes folder for those of you who subscribe to it.

I was able to get some pictures out in the sun! Which is rare here on the Washington coast!

    None of the pictures are showing, not using Chrome Browser or I.E. I’m running Windows 7.
    I downloaded your book and I’m making this now. I used the gram measures and was careful. I had to add water in order to mix the flour in more before adding the salt and then again more water in order to use my mixer.

    Also in the digital download of your book. The photo does not appear under the title “Oat & Honey Soft Sourdough. All the other photo’s seem to be there.

      Hi Marie, sorry about that. When I moved my site, many of the photos did not transfer. I haven’t had a chance yet to fix this problem. The photos of the bread should show up in the book though.
