– warm water  – ripe sourdough starter – bread flour  – salt – brown rice flour 

Before you Start

Feed the starter 8-12 hours prior to making the bread dough. You need a nice & ripe starter. Test the starter by dropping a small amount into a water. If it floats, it’s ripe and ready to use!


Knead the Dough

Use a silicone spatula, or your hand, or the dough hook attachment, knead the dough until all the flour is incorporated, about 2 mins. Let it rest for 5 mins.


Fold the Top and Bottom Ends

Then lift the bottom end & fold it over the center of the dough. Then do the same with the top side of the dough.


Fold the Sides

Lift the sides of the dough & fold it over onto the center as well. Then tuck the corners to form a nice smooth ball. Turn the dough into tight ball.


Ferment the Dough

Put the dough back into the bowl, cover & bulk ferment for 5-6 hours at room temperature (around 70°F).


Roll the Dough

Then from the short end, roll the dough as if you’re rolling a burrito. Tightly pinch the seams. Dust the banneton basket with brown rice flour & put the bread dough into it, seam-side up.



Cover the banneton with saran wrap. Let it proof for 1 hour at room temperature, then cold proof in the refrigerator for 8 to 10 hours. You could also, proof 2 hours at room temperature & bake immediately.



Carefully invert the proofed bread dough onto the hot cloche. Spritz the top of the bread with water & score it to your desired pattern. Cover and bake for 45 mins.
