Easy Sesame Sourdough Bread

Natasha Krajnc

INGREDIENTS For the dough

– 25g sourdough starter – 50g flour – 50g water

INGREDIENTS For the bread

– 280g warm water – 1 tbsp honey – 400g bread flour or all-purpose flour – 50g sesame seeds – 80g starter – 1.5 tsp salt

1. Combine the starter ingredients and tip this into a clean jar. Leave this to rise in a warm place for 6 hours or until it has doubled in size.

2. After 6 hours, in a large bowl combine water and honey; mix well. Add flour and sesame seeds and mix until you’re left with a shaggy dough.

3. Cover the dough with a damp tea towel and leave this to rest. Add 80g of starter to the dough, followed by salt. Wet your hands and squish these ingredients together.

4. Over the next 3 hours stretch and fold your dough a total of 6 times, after every half hour.

5. Once stretching and folding are complete, let the dough rest in a warm spot until it looks much puffier than it began with.
