Sourdough Whole Wheat Honey Molasses Bread
- 1 c active sourdough starter
- 2 c water
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 egg
- 1/4 c honey
- 1/4 c molasses
- 1/4 c avocado or olive oil
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 6-7 c flour
Step by Step Instructions
In your stand mixer combine: starter, water, salt, egg, honey, molasses, oil, and vinegar. While mixing on low speed add your flour, 1 cup at a time, until the dough resembles a shaggy mass (about 5 c of flour).
Turn off the mixer and let it sit for 20-30 minutes. This allows the flour to soak up liquid so that you don’t add too much flour, resulting in a denser loaf.
Remove the dough into a greased bowl and cover with a lid or greased plastic wrap.
After the dough has doubled in size, turn it out onto a lightly greased surface (I use a little bit of water on my counter top). Cut into two pieces. Grease 2 loaf pans.
Shape dough into a basic sandwich loaf.
Spread each piece of dough into a flat rectangle.
Fold ⅓ of the dough over into the middle.
Fold the other ⅓ on top of the first.
Pinch ends and sides together.
Place loaves into greased pans.
Cover and let rise another 2- 2½ hours or until above the edge of the pan..
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake bread for 35 min- utes or until a thermometer inserted into the bottom of the loaf reads 180 degrees.
