Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a large, non-metal bowl, combine the starter with the warmed milk, water, and sugar.
  2. Add 2 ¾ cups of all-purpose einkorn flour and the salt. Stir just a couple of times with a very strong spatula.
  3. Gently add the melted butter or olive oil. Stir until the dough looks mostly wet.
  4. Cover the dough with a kitchen towel and place it on the lowest rack in the oven, with the oven light on. Let the dough rest undisturbed for 8-12 hours.
  5. Line loaf pan with parchment paper (I use this pan).
  6. Pour the dough directly onto a floured surface. Sprinkle another ¼ cup of flour or so on top of the dough.
  7. Fold the dough in thirds. Rotate the dough 90 degrees to the left and fold in thirds again, adding flour as needed to keep the dough from sticking to the surface. Rotate the dough (or the Silpat mat) 90 degrees to the left one more time and fold in thirds again, adding flour as needed to keep the dough from sticking to the surface.
  8. Place dough in the prepared loaf pan. Cover the loaf pan with a towel and place it back in the oven, with the light on, for one hour.
  9. Remove the loaf pan from the oven and let it sit at room temperature until the dough has risen close to the top of the pan, approximately 30-60 minutes.
  10. Preheat the oven to 425F.
  11. Place the loaf pan in the oven and immediately reduce the temperature to 375F.
  12. Bake the bread for 40 minutes. When the bread is ready, let it cool in the loaf pan for 15-20 minutes on a wire rack.
  13. Turn the loaf out from the loaf pan and let the bread continue to cool completely on the wire rack, about 2 hours.

Notes

This einkorn sourdough bread is good for several days, stored in a plastic bag, at room temperature. You can also freeze it for 3-6 months (here’s my guide for freezing bread).

To thaw, let the bread sit overnight on the counter. It will be ready in the morning.

If you want to be able to pull one or two slices out for toast, be sure to slice the loaf before you put it in the freezer!
