Oven Baking Sourdough Temperature

Natasha Krajnc

Place an oven rack at the lowest part of the oven with no rack above it.

Place your Dutch oven or cast iron pot on the oven rack, and preheat the oven to 450 degrees for at least 30 minutes.

For this method of Dutch oven baking, rub some olive oil on the bottom of the pot.

Once your oven has preheated, remove one of the proofing baskets from the fridge, uncover it and place a piece of parchment paper over the basket.

Place a baking sheet atop the parchment paper and use both hands to flip it over.

Gently remove the basket and your dough should rest perfectly on the parchment.

Bake for 20 minutes. Then remove the lid from your Dutch oven, close the oven door and bake for another 30 minutes.

Once done, the loaf should have an internal temperature of 208 degrees F, and crust should be a deep golden brown.
