How I Make Sourdough Bread Every Day In LESS Than 30 Minutes (hands-on time)

This is the process that I use to bake sourdough bread every day. I’ve cut the process down to a minimum while making sure that I still get a fantastic loaf of bread.

It’s not quite as speedy as my no-knead recipe but the crumb is a little more organised with less of a random open crumb.

  • It's 69.5 percent hydration. It is best to point that out! Lower hydration of 70 percent you can skip many of the processes multiple stretch and fold, pre-shaping ect ….. but the bread will be denser but great for making sandwiches.

  • Do you feed the jar scrapings straight from the fridge and what time did you mix the starter thanks.

  • Damn dude, this man worked on a bread for over two days. Man just how much I hate cooking for this exact reason… All the more reason to just hire a cook to do everything for you and you get to enjoy your time.

  • "In less than 30 minutes" and the whole process actually takes almost 3 days 😅. I was really wondering how the dude will be able to bake a whole bread in just half an hour for the whole process, is the only reason I even clicked and watched the video.

  • you always mentioning high protein content – what's a good number for grams of protein to get to that 10 – 13% you keep talking about

  • You make dinner at 9?

    Love the video, though!

  • Thank you so much. I have never baked bread before but I'll definitely give it a try.

  • How is this 30 min

  • Would you mind sharing how high (at the peak but not including the ear) this bread gets? I'm working on perfecting the execution of this one and I want to know how much higher I might be able to get it. My crumb looks like it could expand a little more but it seems pretty close.

  • Thank you sir, this looks very easy; I'll surely try this on Saturday!

  • ah if there's one thing I love about being in the US South it's that the warm temps are great for baking quickly. Your inside temp is my outside temperature during winter lol

  • Très bon travail.

  • I think I’ll buy my sourdough from a shop! However, fantastic loaf though!

  • 30 min 😂😂😂

  • Phil, I've been having really great results with this recipe (with strong Canadian flour – 14.9 protein, sometimes including 50g wholemeal). Have to admit that I stretch & fold every hour during bulk fermentation, though. What I don't understand is the very low hydration (40.8%? – 750g total ingredients, 306g water, 486g flour) compared with every other recipe I've seen. Or have I got that calculation wrong?

    Richard Lyon 20/10/2022 am9:27
  • So it actually takes 48 hours. Not 30 miniutes

  • Exelent

  • Thank you!

    Теодор К. 20/10/2022 am9:27
  • A question: could I let this dough proof for 12 hours at room temperature while I am working my shift? And then transfer to the fridge?

    Chantelle Ropp 20/10/2022 am9:27
  • How do you get the first starter?
