Make your First Sourdough with GRIPmitt

April 09, 2024

Have you always thought it’s too complicated to make homemade sourdough? Follow this easy recipe and you will be surprised how simple it is! All you need is a good starter, a couple of ingredients and a pair of GRIPmitt in your favorite color.

Are you wondering where to get a starter without the need to make it from scratch? Try to ask in a local bakery or ask your neighbors or friends. Another option is to join the Facebook group called Sourdough Geeks and ask if somebody near you can provide you with the starter. Or just go online and buy it – there are numerous of options from the fresh starter to the dry sourdough starter.

For a simple sourdough, you’ll need:

  • 70 g of starter
  • 350 ml of warm water
  • 500 g flour
  • 9 g salt

When you have a good starter secured, you are all set to start with your first loaf!

In a big bowl, mix 350 ml of warm water, 70 grams of started, then add 500 grams of flour and salt. You can either use all-purpose or bread flour. At this point, the mixture will be very rough and sticky. Don’t worry about it. Cover it with a kitchen towel and leave it to rest for about 20 minutes. Then place the mixture on the working surface and stretch the side and fold it in the middle. Repeat few more times until you shape the whole loaf. Then place it to the bread-proofing basket covered with a little bit of flour and leave it to rise in a warm place for about 7 hours or overnight. It should double its size.

Then repeat the folding process and leave it rise for another three hours. Preheat the oven at 420°F and if you will bake your loaf in the Dutch oven, you should preheat it too. If you don’t have a Dutch oven, use round-shaped baking tray with baking paper and cover it with aluminum foil on the top. Cut the cross in the center of your loaf with a very sharp knife and using GRIPmitt place your first loaf into the oven.

Bake for about 30 minutes, then uncover and bake for another 20 minutes until the crust of your sourdough is nice and gold. Using GRIPmitt, take the bread from the oven and leave it cool down.
