This sourdough is a family favorite.
Try this recipe to make 2 loaves in round pans, cut a lid from the top, hollow it out and fill it with spinach dip. Place the insides surrounding it on a serving platter for dipping. Instant hit!
You’ll notice in the pictures I’ve used the same recipe to make 1 very (VERY lol) large loaf, 2 loaves and 3 loaves. Personally I prefer 2 with this recipe.
That VERY large loaf, by the way, was baked in a 9 inch springform pan, just to give you an idea of how big that sucker is!!
- 1 cup sourdough starter
- 6 cups flour
- 3 cups room temperature water
- 2 tsp salt
Mix 2 cups water & sourdough starter.
Add 3 cups of flour, 1 cup at a time.
Add remaining water and salt.
Stir in remaining flour.
Cover and leave on counter to rise 12 - 15 hours.
Sprinkle the top with flour and fold dough to degas.
Grease pans and divide dough. Cover and let rise 2 - 5 hours.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place an extra bread pan (or another oven safe pan) that is about 1/3 - 1/2 full of water in oven. Use enough water that the it won't all evaporate.
Bake bread for 30 minutes. Remove the water pan from oven, and bake bread another 15 minutes.
