3 1/2 cups
active rye sourdough starter
1 1/8 cups
2 1/2 tablespoons
butter, cut into small pieces
5 1/3 cups
- In a large bowl mix all ingredients together until a small ball forms and pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Transfer dough to a floured surface. Knead dough for 5 to 8 minutes. Dough will come together well but remain a little wet. Let dough rest for 5 minutes. Knead for another 5 to 8 minutes or until dough is smooth. Cut the dough in half, form into rough loaf shape. Let dough rest, covered, for 30 minutes.
- Generously grease two 9 x 5 inch loaf pans. Shape dough and place in prepared pans. Dust tops of loaves with flour. Cover loaves with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled in size, about 2 hours or depending on activity of your starter and warmth of your home.
- Preheat oven to 450º. Put the bread in the oven, put a cup of hot water into a pan in the bottom of the oven and bake for 10 minutes, turn the oven down to 350º Bake another 30 to 45 minutes.
