How to make it

  • The night before you want to bake the bread, combine all the soaker ingredients in a bowl and cover with enough cool water to rise 1” above the mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature overnight.
  • For bread, combine starter, water and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer until well mixed.
  • Add the flours and yeast and knead with the dough hook for 5 minutes.
  • Add the oil and salt and knead 2 minutes.
  • Drain any excess water from the soaker and add the contents to the bowl.
  • Knead for 12 minutes on medium-low speed. Dough will be very moist, but add no more than 1/4 cup extra flour.
  • Cover bowl and let proof (rise) for 3 hours.
  • Grease a 9x5” loaf pan well.
  • Gently deflate the risen dough (I basically stirred it down) and scrape into the pan, doing your best to get an even layer.
  • Cover lightly with a piece of greased plastic wrap and allow it to rise until it is about 1/2-1”over the rim of the pan (about 1-1 1/2 hours).
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Place the bread in the oven and immediately reduce the temperature to 350°F.
  • Bake the bread for 45-55 minutes, tenting it with foil after 30 minutes.
  • When it's done, the bread will be golden brown, and will register 190°F on an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center.
  • Turn it out of the pan immediately and cool completely on a rack before slicing.
