    The sourdough recipe says 300g of bread flour in one place and 350 in another

    Thanks Sune for another great recipe and video – I will make it next, I’m well overdue to thank you for your guidance and inspiration over the past 18 months on all aspects of sourdough. With your help my sourdough craft has matured from total novice to the stage where the look, smell and feel of starter and/or dough tells me what I need to do without racing back to one of your videos or recipes.
    I also love and learn from the experiments and how your techniques (eg shaping) evolve and improve over time.
    Last night I bought the scoring T shirt as a small gesture of support and look forward to wearing it when I’m in the sourdough zone. I’ll keep an eye out for new merch as well.
    Once again thanks for the mentorship!

    • Thanks, Craig 🙂 That’s amazing to hear! And thank you for supporting me with the t-shirt as well. I hope you will wear it with pride 😀

  3. Can you retard the sandwich bread for more complex flavor?

    • Absolutely. Put it in earlier than when you would bake to account for the growth until it’s cooled down. Bake from cold 🙂

    Thank you Sune this recipe is delicious! The load barely hit the counter before it was consumed. Are any modifications needed to make it a double batch other than doubling the ingredients?

    Hello Sune,
    I thank you so much for all your videos and experiments. You have been my go to reference for 2 years now on all things sourdough. I’m proud to say that as a result I’m making great bread several times a week! At this point have you completely skipped the stretch and folds for all recipes?

    • Not all, because I enjoy to do them, but they’re really not needed most of the time 🙂

    Wow. Everything seemed wrong. The dough was stiff and didn’t seem like it was going to work. I nearly didn’t bother baking it off. What I got was a sensational rise and a sensational flavour (probably a little underproofed cos it was late and I bunged it in the fridge after shaping). Such a lovely sandwich loaf. Highly recommended.

    Hi Sune – Just made the sourdough version of this recipe yesterday and it is simply fantastic. I doubled the honey, as you suggested, and am very glad I did. For me, the sweetness of the honey and the mild tang of the sourdough is the perfect combination. I also scaled the recipe to 500g flour weight and was pleased with the loaf size. Beautiful flavor, crust and crumb. Thanks for sharing this! And PS – I never could get that apple starter to work for me, but I remain undaunted. 😀 Going to try some different organic apples at some point and see if I can get it to work. I’ll keep you posted! Cheers.

    about how long does it take for the final rise?

    The directions seem to be for a pullman pan. What size should I use if I don’t have one, and is baking it covered absolutely required? I have a 9”x5” and a 10”x5” loaf pan.

    • I’ve added my pan’s measurements to the recipe. If you then change it to yours, the recipe will be scaled accordingly 🙂

    I made the sou9rdough version and it is truly amazing – perfumed with honey and with a delicious crumb, at the same time light and fluffy and almost dense like a cake. I loved it. Bravo!

    Can you give the dimensions of the Pullman pan ? I’m in England and we don’t have them here but I’m sure I could make something similar if I knew the size ?

    Very good post and video

    • About 23×10. If you follow the link in the recipe, I’ve linked the actual pullman pan on amazon.co.uk 🙂

    Dear Sune, I’m a huge fan of your recipes, videos, and methods! My absolute favorite recipe is your Fudgy Sourdough Brownies made with discard! OOh la la, they’re outstanding!! The best I’ve ever eaten!! But, I need your help!! I made a huge mistake after shaping the Honey Oat Sourdough Sandwich Bread dough and placing it in a tin. Instead of starting the final proof, I accidentally covered it and put it straight into the fridge for an overnight retard. Now what do I do? It’s too late at night to let it rise now. Will it be salvageable to remove it from the fridge in the A.M. and let it rise 50-75%, before baking it? Thank you so much for inspiring this wonderfully joyful hobby!

    • Just take it out in the morning and finish the rise. It should be fine.

        The beautiful dough is warming nicely on the counter now, thanks to your hopeful reply! We were rushing to a family birthday meal, and that’s all it took to distract me from following the details properly! There are many SD experts out there, but you’re the best! Thank you very sincerely!

        Sune, YOU WERE EXACTLY RIGHT! This loaf is absolute PERFECTION! I couldn’t be more pleased with the results! The crust is lightly crispy but easily flexible, the crumb is delightfully tender, light and soft; and the flavor is mildly sweet, with a delicate oat texture that adds to the overall unctuousness of each bite! It exceeded my expectations in every way! So much so that I have an identical dough in the Cambro rising merrily on the counter right now! I may never go back to SD white sandwich bread ever again! Not only is this recipe significantly easier than SD white sandwich bread, but it’s simply far more satisfying all the way around! Couldn’t be happier! Thanks again for everything you do so that home bakers can live the dream!
