My sour dough recipe.
Water 250 cc
Milk 250 cc
Wholemeal 200 gm
Rye 250 gm
Plain white 150 gm
Bran 30 gm
Brown Sugar 1 tbl spoon
Salt 1 tspoon
Olive Oil 2 glugs 🙂
Mix in the order above. Need well. Remove some starter for next time (a table spoon full) and store in fridge. If not using for a long time, some say you can freeze the starter.
It may take 12 hours to rise so you need to calculate when it is about time to bake it. I watch as it rises and when it seems to be running out of puff, I bake it. Knock down (need it) after 3 hours if you can.
I use a bread maker to bake it for 1 hr, 10 minutes as a guide.
