No Knead Sourdough Bread

Sourdough has always been one of my favorite breads. I never thought I would be able to make it myself, but I have found it to be really easy. I've tried a couple of recipes and this one from Sylvia at Feasting at Home is the best! It's quick, it's easy and absolutely delicious!

How I Made it Mine

I didn't change a thing on this one. It's three ingredients; flour, water and salt. Super simple. One caveat, I did not make my sourdough starter from scratch. It was given to me by a very good neighbor because I had some trouble starting my own. There are a lot of recipes and videos available on the internet for making the sourdough starter if you don't have a friendly neighbor to give you one. And the great thing about it, is once you have one, you can keep it for life! I mean literally. The oldest one I think is over a hundred years old. There are many websites and videos explaining how to do that as well.

I have also included my first attempt at a video. I don't know about y'all, but I'm a visual learner and I love when people include videos. If you have any problems or questions, please feel free to comment or send me a message.

I hope you give it a try!


  • 520 grams white bread flour

  • 2 tsp fine sea salt

  • 385 grams

  • 90 grams sourdough starter

  • Rice flour or extra flour for dusting


  • Using a kitchen scale, measure flour in a bowl.

  • Stir in salt and make a small well in the center.

  • Using the scale again, measure out water and add the sourdough starter. Mix well.

  • Pour mixture into the flour. Stir until flour is combined using a wooden spoon.

  • Cover with a wet towel for 15 minutes.

  • With wet hands, pull dough from the edge into the center. Do this all the way around turning the bowl one quarter each time. Continue for about 20 seconds.

  • Cover with a wet towel for another 15 minutes.

  • Repeat the pulling of the dough and cover with the wet towel.

  • Let dough proof on the counter for about 8 hours.

  • With wet hands, pull the dough from the edges of the bowl. Lift the dough from the bowl and let it stretch. Fold gently into the bowl. Turn the bowl a quarter and repeat.

  • In a parchment lined bowl, place the dough inside. Sprinkle with rice flour or all purpose.

  • Preheat oven to 500F with a dutch oven inside for one hour. Place the dough in the refrigerator during this time.

  • Remove dough from the refrigerator and score the top is desired. Pick up the edges of the parchment and place dough in the preheated dutch oven.

  • Cover and bake for 20 minutes.

  • Remove cover and bake another 10-12 minutes, depending on how brown you want your bread.

  • Remove bread from dutch oven and let cool completely before cutting.

  • Enjoy! Nothing like fresh bread right from the oven!
