While sourdough bread is incredible, many people shy away from making it because they believe it to be very difficult to get done right. But who can really resist this great quality bread? I certainly cannot, and this is why I made this simple no yeast sourdough bread recipe that anyone can make.

It’s perfect for anyone wanting to bake sourdough bread with an all-purpose flour substitute like wheat flour.

Tips on making crusty sourdough bread:

  • Make sure you leave your bread to proof after mixing. I recommend 12 hours.
  • To get that nice crust do not bake the bread in a preheated oven. Place the bread in a cold oven and then turn it on. 
  • If you want to speed up things with a quick starter, combine ½ cup flour with ½ cup real kefir milk or yogurt with probiotics. Cover and let this rest at room temperature for 24 hours.

Final thoughts

Leavening agents like baking powder and baking soda were not always around. People had to make something that would work and that is always available to help their bread rise. That is how the sourdough starter was created. And thank god it was too! Whether it was made by accident or on purpose, whoever invented sourdough starter definitely deserves a reward since it makes great quality bread that is always welcome at the table!
