Making sourdough starter was the first step in baking my Dutch Oven sourdough bread. Follow the link and you can see how I made my own sourdough starter for my bread.
Dough raised and ready to bake.
I played around with several recipes to come up with my own version of Dutch Oven sourdough bread.
Here is my recipe:
I used 2 cups of starter which was pretty thin and running
1 cup of water
3-4 cups of flour (adding in to make a nice dough ball)
1/2 cup of wheat flour
2 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
1-1 1/2 tsp honey
Knead and spread out dough ball and cover 1 hour. Then I kneaded again and place in Dutch Oven with the lid on for 1-2 additional hour before baking. Leave long enough for a good rise.
Bake 450 degrees in pre-heated oven
Bake 30 minutes with lid on Dutch Oven
Then bake 10 minutes approx with lid off to brown
