Can You Eat Sourdough Bread on a Gluten-Free Diet?
Thank you so much Denise! I hope you find this tutorial helpful. Happy baking! After I made a starter from scratch, I hunted around online for the perfect sourdough bread recipe before I decided to make this one here. The pictures and step-by-steps instructions were convincing! The breads I made two loaves from the recipe also looked professional. I reached out to Emilie and she helped me troubleshoot the problem, which was that my dutch ovens were on a lower-than-middle rack in order to fit in my small stove.

Thanks, Emilie, for posting this recipe and helping me out with my many questions about baking bread. I must be doing something wrong. I have followed this recipe several times and the same thing happens every time. When I get to the shaping part after the bulk rise, I have a wet, runny, sticky mess. So I end up washing my hands. Throwing the remainder back in the bowl, stirring in more floor and getting a workable texture. Then I let it do the final rise in my Dutch oven. But it always ends up being thick and hard.
What am I doing wrong? Hi Abigail! Sorry to hear that you are having difficulty with your dough. I am more than happy to help you- There are several things that could have went wrong, but it sounds to me like there was too much water in your dough. Are you using a thick or thin starter? Do you weigh your ingredients? What brand of bread flour are you using? Based on what you mentioned, it was probably overworked which caused the gases to deflate.
Also, your starter may not have been active enough. I hope this information helps! If you have any additional questions or you just want to trouble shoot, feel free to email me info theclevercarrot. Thanks for the reply. Is that supposed to be a weight not a volume ounce?

That could be my problem…. I think that might have been it… for best results, I would always recommend weighing your ingredients.
It is the most accurate. The ounces is a weight measurement, not volume.
Do you have a scale? I use a digital kitchen scale, and I can go back and forth between ounces and grams easily :. It would make a lot of sense for you to post the volume amount for those of us that do not have a scale. There will be less room for error when all ingredients are weighed on a kitchen scale you can pick up an inexpensive one at any home store. I hope this clears up any confusion!
Well guess what?

- The A to Z of Sweden (The A to Z Guide Series);
I got a scale and it came out great! I have noticed a difference in the type of flour I use too. I made one with einkorn and one with spelt. They are both good, but different textures….
Sourdough Bread Masterclass With Patrick Ryan
Hey Thanks so much for posting this! Hi Morgan! Thank you so much for letting me know! Your instructions were straight forward and simple. Thanks for taking the time to post gorgeous pictures and details of what you might expect to see. Oh good! Taking on Sourdough can be a little intimidating and that was the motivation for this tutorial.
I wanted to create something for beginners and seasoned bakers alike. I hope this finds you well! If you have any questions along the way please do not hesitate to get in touch. All the best :. Thank you so much! I tried baking sourdough bread before following the starter manufacturer instructions and had that hard-to-bite crust every time no matter what I tried! You advice on the dutch oven is priceless!
My bread turned out almost perfect, considering it sat on the counter a day longer, the vessel was too small, and no knife was sharp enough. Wow, Emilie. Your photography is absolutely stunning and your recipes and so creative. Pinned this!! Hi Leigha!
How sweet of you- thanks so much! Talking bread is so my thing ;. I knew that sourdough was difficult to make, so your attention to detail is appreciated. Any idea why? Are you using an electric oven? Hi Katie! Sorry to hear about your loaf… this has happened to me before and is very frustrating. To find a solution, I just need a little more info so that I can help you properly- how long did you let the dough rise 1st time and did it look round and puffy or was it deflated?
Also, how long did you leave the lid on the pot before removing it? Although you indicate to stretch the dough, most sourdough recipes call for minutes of solid kneading. I made my first sourdough loaf today using a selection of instructions from various recipes — including kneading, based on my intuition.
It turned out great. Great to have your instructions in so much detail.
Hi John, welcome!
