Week 58: Same Day Sourdough

Baking a sourdough loaf is a two-day affair, because there are so many stages in the prepping and proofing. I set out to find if it was possible to a.) make a loaf in one day, and b.) be 100% satisfied with the result. And, I’m here to tell you that there is! This is a method for baking a sourdough loaf with no overnight rise, and if you get started early enough, (8:00 AM) you’ll have a warm loaf to bring to the dinner table.

I found the recipe on “The Regular Chef’s” YouTube channel, linked below. His method make two loaves, I’ve cut that in half, and wrote out those ingredients below, with a sample schedule so you can plan accordingly. Have fun!
