    My First Sourdough Loaf

    This boule it's my first attempt at a natural wild yeast leavened bread. I followed the recipe for Basic Country Loaf in the Tartine Bread book carefully. Everything was going very well until I went to turn it out of the banneton and it stuck to the liner. The whole "top" came off and the loaf substantially deflated. It did recover fairly well in the pot, considering. The bread tastes delicious it is very tender with great flavor. Quite different form the no-knead loaves I had been making. If I can figure out how to get it to release from the basket liner, the next one should be much better.

    Had the liner stuff happen to me, even heavily floured. I tossed it.

      Good looking loaf. Don’t sweat the sticking banneton. It’ll get better after a few more loaves ... just keep it well floured.

        Certainly looks good! What kind of flour - any wheat or rye in there?

          Thanks. My starter, and leaven, are 50/50 unbleached white AP flour and whole wheat flour. The bread is 90/10 white bread flour to whole wheat.

        Use white rice flour on the banneton liner. Looks great!

          That' what I use as well. You can also use semolina if you have it.

        That looks right pretty there. I would eat it.
