Super easy No Knead Wholemeal Sourdough

You need:

A cup or so of active sourdough starter that was fed around 8-12 hours ago.
3C Strong white flour
2C Wholemeal flour
2t Salt
2 Eggs (optional)
2 1/2-3C Warm water (depending on the moisture content of your flour and size of your eggs)


Measure flours and salt into a large bowl. Add eggs and enough water to make quite a soft dough. You can mix it with a spoon and some effort but it is too soft to knead.

Once the dough has obviously risen (if it hasn’t overnight, put it somewhere warmer for a further hour or two), heat your oven to 200 Celcius with a dutch oven/heavy pot and lid in it for 10 minutes.

Take the pot out, remove the lid, grease it with butter/dripping and carefully flip the dough in.

Remove the lid and bake for a further 40 minutes.
