Sourdough bread without mixer


  • For the sourdough starter

  • In a jar add the water, the flours, and mix with a spoon until the mixture turns into a paste. Seal the jar with a lid and leave it at room temperature for 24 hours, until it starts activating.
  • On the second day, add to the same jar 50 g water, 50 g of the flours, mix, and seal the jar. Leave it at room temperature for more 24 hours. At this point, you will have 200 g of sourdough starter.
  • On the third day, remove 100 g of your sourdough starter. Add to the jar 50 g water and 50 g of the flours, mix, and seal with the lid. Leave it at room temperature for 24 hours.
  • Follow the same process for 7-10 days in total. You should always have 200 of sourdough starter, remove 100 g, and feed with more 100 g.
  • If you don’t use it right away, store it in the refrigerator. When you need it, follow the same process of “feeding” and wait for 3 hours until it doubles in volume. Then, use it to make the bread.
  • For the bread

  • In a bowl add 130 g of the sourdough starter, the flour, the water, and mix with a spoon. When the dough is formed, keep kneading with your hands.
  • Add the dough into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let it rest for 1 hour at room temperature.
  • Then, add the salt and knead. If you don’t want the dough to stick to your hands, wet them with a little water and continue. Transfer to the same bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and leave it at room temperature for 1 more hour, until doubled.
  • Dust your working surface with flour and knead. Give a round shape to the dough and put it in a bowl lined with parchment paper and dusted with a little flour. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside for 3-4 hours to double in volume or refrigerate for 12 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 250ο C (480ο F) set to fan and put a pot with a lid inside, until it gets very hot.
  • Remove the pot from the oven and add the dough in it, along with the parchment paper. Score their surface into 1-2 spots and cover with the lid.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, remove the lid, and bake for 20 more minutes.
  • Serve with olive oil and salt.
