Honey Whole Wheat Sourdough


  • 1 tablespoon dry active yeast
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup warm water (~110 degrees)
  • 2/3 cup sourdough starter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1-1.5 cups bread flour


  • Dissolve the yeast and sugar in the warm water until foamy, about 10 minutes.
  • Add starter, salt, oil, honey and whole wheat flour and mix thoroughly.
  • Begin adding bread flour, 1/4 cup at a time, until dough becomes stiff.
  • Knead dough until smooth and elastic. This took about 10 minutes in my stand mixer.
  • Place dough in a ball in a greased bowl and let rise until double.
  • Deflate dough and reshape into a ball and let rise until double again.
  • Deflate dough and roll in a large rectangle, about 8 inches wide.
  • Tightly roll the dough into a log, and place in loaf pan.
  • Let rise until double in pan and preheat oven to 400.
  • Bake ~35 minutes until done.
  • ***This can be made as a regular loaf of bread, without the starter. Just leave it out.
  • ***This can also be made into a free form loaf without the rolling and loaf pan.
