  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: 1 loaf 1x


  • 75g sourdough discard
  • 300g all purpose flour
  • 30g whole wheat flour
  • 7g instant yeast
  • 25g granulated sugar
  • 6g salt
  • 150g milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 28g unsalted butter


  1. Combine the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir using a wooden spoon or spatula. Once you’re left with a shaggy dough, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rest for 15 minutes.
  2. Transfer the dough to a clean work surface, and start to knead the dough. Hold the bottom of the dough with the tips of your fingers, and fold the dough over itself, then push it out using the heel of your hand. Repeat until the dough becomes smooth.
  3. Shape the dough into a tight ball, and place it into a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with a plastic wrap and let the dough rise, till it doubles in volume (1 to 2 hours).
  4. Punch the dough to release the trapped air, and divide into 3 equal portions. Round each portion of dough into a tight ball, then cover with a plastic wrap and let the dough relax for 15 minutes. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a flat oval, then form the dough into a tight cylinder shape. Lightly grease a loaf pan, and place each cylinder of dough into the loaf pan.
  5. Cover the dough with a plastic wrap and let the dough rise, until it becomes puffy.
  6. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  7. Whisk together an egg, along with a pinch of salt, and use a pastry brush to coat the top of the dough with a layer of egg wash.
  8. Bake the dough for 30 to 35 minutes, until you have a gorgeous golden brown loaf.
  9. Transfer the sourdough discard sandwich bread to a wire rack, and cool for 20 minutes before slicing.
