I've been making my own wholemeal bread for some years, but in 2012 I discovered the sourdough version and am now hooked! It has such a tangy flavour and sticky moist texture with a crisp outer crust.
I suggest adding only 250ml of the water first as you don't want the dough to be too wet and sticky. Sourdough gets very sticky. The exact amount of water to add will vary depending on the exact amount of lemon juice and yogurt added, how runny the sourdough starter and yogurt are and the type of flour.
Chris, during those 7 days while making the sourdough, how much flour and water do I need to add every day? Is it a tablespoon of each? This will be my first loaf Thanks. - 05 Sep 2013 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Great bread. For my first one I just used 1/2 tsp of salt and not the lemon or ground Caraway seed. Quite the most delicious taste! Thank you. - 24 Jun 2013 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
