Natural Yeast Sandwich Bread

Still working on my bread making skills. This tasted great but was pretty dense. I think I added too much flour even though I added what the recipe called for. I’ll give it a go again with less flour and see how that turns out.

2 cups sourdough starter, that has been fed in the last 12 hours

2 1/2 cups warm water

3/4 cup honey

1 egg, beaten

1 tablespoon salt

1/3 cup coconut or vegetable oil

about 9 1/2 cups flour or bread flour

1 In a mixer or large bowl, combine starter, water, honey, salt, egg, and oil.

2 Add flour, 1 cup at a time, with mixer running, until dough starts to pull away from the bowl. Dough should be elastic, stretchy, and slightly tacky.

3 Knead for 10 minutes.

4 Cover dough with clean dish towel or lid. (I think the dough should be brushed with oil before covering.) Let rise until double in size, 4 – 6 hours.

5 When doubled, turn out onto lightly floured surface and divide into 3 equal pieces. Form into loaves and place in greased loaf pans. Cover with towel and let rise again until double in size, 3 – 5 hours.

6 Bake at 400 degrees for 28 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 180 degrees.

7 Immediately turn out of loaf pans when done baking and let cool on wire racks.
