Start with one cup of sourdough starter and begin to feed it. I feed the starter right in my plastic Bosch bowl and stir with a plastic spatula. Let the starter get to room temperature and
add 2/3 cups flour and 1/2 cup water – wait 4 to 16 hours
add 1-1/4 cup flour and 1 cup water – wait 4 to 16 hours
add 2-1/2 cups flour and 2 cups water – wait 4 to 16 hours
This will yeild 7 cups of starter. Put one cup in a plasic bowl or glass jar until next time. Put two cups in another plastic or glass container for biscuits, pancakes, or another batch of bread.(bring to room temp. add 2 cups water and two cups flour wait 4 to 16 hours and begin bread)
Multi – Grain Sourdough Bread
4 cups sourdough
2 cups water
2 cups KA unbleached flour
2 cups whole grain spelt flour
2 cups golden whole wheat
1 Tablespoon Real salt
Add ingredients to the Bosch mixer bowl in order with the mixer on speed 1. Add the last flour slowly to make sure the dough is not too dry. Stop the mixer and feel to see if it sticks to your fingers. If it is sticky then add more flour. If all the grains listed are not enough I add more unbleached flour. The amount of flour will vary depending on the flour used.You want a stiff dough. When dough reaches desired consistency, I mix on speed 1 for 3 more minutes. Divide into 3 loaves about 2lbs. each. Place into greased loaf pans. I like glass. Allow to rise to desired height. 4 – 6 hours. Bake @350 for 40 min. for glass dishes. For stainless steel pans 375 for 40 -50 min. Adjust according to your oven. The tops do not get dark brown, check the bottom.
I use this dough for pizza crusts, monkey bread, sweet rolls, flatbread, or for whatever you would use bread dough.
