Homemade Sourdough

Let’s bake the perfect loaf at home!


  • In a mixing bowl, add the flour, 225ml of warm water, the salt, honey and starter and mix until combined. (If the mixture is too sticky you'll need to add more water).

  • Dust a clean work surface with flour and knead the dough for 10 minutes. Pop the dough into an oiled bowl and cover with clingfilm. Leave in a warm area of the home for 3 hours.

  • Line a bowl with a clean tea towel, sprinkle with flour, pop the dough on to your work surface, knead into a ball and dust with flour.

  • Pop into the prepare bowl, cover with cling film and leave to double in size.

  • Heat a baking tray in the oven at 230C or 210C for fan assisted ovens, pour some water into a roasting tin and place at the bottom of the oven. Sprinkle the baking tray with flour (be careful it will be hot!) and add the dough.

  • Slash the top of the dough with a knife, bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. Leave to cool.
