This is a 1-hour initial rise ~ No stand-mixer required:

The longer the initial dough ball rise,
the stronger the sourdough flavor becomes
(e.g., 1-hour vs a 9-12 hour rise time)...

Yield: (1 loaf)
Prep: 7 Mins.
Total rising time: 1-2 hours
Bake: 35 Mins.


1-1/2 cups lukewarm water
1 teaspoon active yeast (not rapid or instant)
1 tablespoon light agave (or honey)

1/2 cup ripe (fed) sourdough starter

2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 -1/2 cups Whole-Wheat Flour (I use King Arthur)
1-1/4 teaspoons kosher salt

--2 teaspoons Mazola oil
(For top and bottom of dough ball, so it doesn't stick or form crust while rising)

--2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
(For brushing top of loaf through mid-baking time, and post-baking time if you desire a more-tender and golden brown crust)


Add to a small glass/plastic bowl, the lukewarm water, yeast, and agave; stir to combine. Let proof for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium glass/plastic bowl, add the flours, kosher salt, and sponge. Once the yeast mixture has proofed, add it to this mixture. Mix with a wooden spoon to combine. The dough will look rough and shaggy. Use clean hands to shape into a ball.

Place 2 tablespoons Mazola oil into a separate medium/glass bowl. Place the dough ball into the oiled bowl, swirling it around to coat; turn over and swirl a bit more. Spray bottom of plastic wrap and cover bowl. Place in a warm, non-draft area and let rise for 1 hour, or until doubled. (Save plastic wrap.)

Spray a loaf pan and set aside.

Lightly oil working surface (not flour), and knead dough for 5-10 minutes, just until smooth and dough bounces back when depressed with your thumb.  Roll into a loaf shape, and place in prepared pan. Cover with reserved plastic wrap, and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.

Meanwhile, 15 minutes prior to final rise, preheat oven to 375F.

After loaf has fully risen, spray a sharp knife with oil and cut a 1/2" slit lengthwise across the top of loaf.

Bake for 15 minutes, and note which direction you take pan out of oven, turn pan and brush top of loaf with melted butter then return to oven to continue baking an additional 20 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 192F.

Remove from oven, leaving loaf in pan and place, uncovered, on rack to cool for 5 minutes. Remove loaf from pan and place upright on rack, cover with clean kitchen towel and allow to completely cool before slicing.  

Wrap loosely in plastic wrap to store at room temperature up to 2 days. ~ Enjoy!
