Making Sourdough Bread with Jennifer

February 12, 2019

Let me say there is nothing better than hot bread hitting the table, am I right. like to eat my bread with to much butter and honey drizzle. I have a friend who recently hosted a class on bread making and I knew I had to attend. It was a few hours of laughter, learning and girl time that I so badly need in my life.

Fresh Hot Homemade Bread

Sourdough Bread Starter

It is best that your starter is kept in a glass jar with a lid with holes.

 Remember years ago, when your Mom or Grandma had the starter for bread and they had it passed down to from an aunt or maybe their mother, it was treated as an heirloom? This is right where my mind went when I heard about the class.

You know the friendship bread trend was pretty heavy for many years, let's bring it back! The recipe I am going to share with you makes two loaves, keep one, give one.

Dough mixed and ready to rise

Dough all mixed up 

Shape dough

Shape the dough gently(no kneading) so it fits in the loaf pan

Let dough rise

Let dough rise in pan until it reaches the sides

Fresh Bread

Bake at 30 degrees for 35-40 mins and enjoy

Honey with warm bread

I enjoyed my fresh made bread with butter, honey, and wine.

Do you still have your Mom or Grandma's starter? 
I would love to hear about your bread making stories of your past. 

This bread takes some prep but with a plan, you can enjoy bread most anytime.

Thanks to Jennifer for sharing her talents with me and others who have taken her class.

If you are in the Mooresville area and would like to learn how to bake bread with Jennifer, just 

contact me and I will share her info with you.

See you later.

Homemade delicious bread in just a few simple steps.


Bread Starter
  • 1 Cup Warm Water
  • Mix into the cup of warm water 
  •   3/4 cup of sugar and 3T potato flakes and stir
  • Pour into a glass jar with a lid that allows air to escape and let "feed" all day or night sitting on the counter
  • You will use part of it to make bread and return remaining starter to fridge after mixing the dough
  • 6 cups of bread flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1T salt
  • 1 1/2 cup mixture(starter) and 1 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup oil-vegetable or canola
  • Mix and let rise overnight in a bowl covered with plastic


  1. Dump out onto floured surfaces and split into loaves and let it rise in pans until over the edge. This takes several hours.
  2. This is where you can get creative. I make mine into 2 loaves and 1 onto a pizza sheet.
  3. Once risen to desired height bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes
