If you’re looking to expand your artisan bread-baking skills, you should definitely try your hand at making this Overnight Rustic Sourdough Bread.

Made in a similar fashion to my Dutch Oven Sourdough, this exceptionally crusty loaf incorporates whole wheat flour for added fiber and a deliciously nutty undertone.


Sourdough Starter Bread Flour Levain Whole Wheat Flour Bread Flour

Step 1: Make Levain

Mix active starter and water together before adding bread flour and mix until homogenous approximately 12 hours.

Step 2: Autolyse

Mix your levain and warm water together until combined in a large bowl.

Step 3: Add Salt

Add 2 teaspoons of kosher salt to your dough mixture and mix with a spatula or your hands until the salt granules have dissolved completely into the dough.

Place in a bowl greased with one tablespoon of olive oil, cover, and set aside to rest for another 45 minutes.

Step 4: Folding The Dough

Gently stretch the dough in an upwards motion before placing back onto itself - do this four times every 30 minutes rotating around the dough as you do so.
