Bake sourdough bread

What you need

Here is everything you need to bake sourdough bread.


  • big mixing bowl
  • covered baking dish (Dutch oven or casserole with lid)
  • oven

About the baking dish: The dish has to be deep enough to allow the bread to rise while baking, without touching the lid and burning. The dough can double in volume when baked. So, if you want a 4″ high loaf, the dough should fill the container to 2″ and be at least 4″ high.


  • sourdough starter, revved up (explained in the next lesson)
  • flour
  • water
  • salt
