How to make homemade sourdough bread
To prepare homemade sourdough bread, start mixing in a bowl the rye and the flour with the dried yeast.
Add 175 ml lukewarm water and the sourdough.
Add the sugar, salt, 2 tbsp oil and just as much water as the dough can hold without becoming too wet or sticky (approx. 175 ml).
Knead thoroughly on a floured work surface, then cover and rest for around 1 hour.
Line a baking tray with grease-proof paper.
Knead the dough again, form into an oblong loaf and place on the baking tray.
Cover and leave to rest for a further 45 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the oven to 200°C (180° fan) gas 6.
Brush the dough with the remaining oil and bake for around 1 hour.
Remove the homemade sourdough bread and leave to cool before serving or storing.
