In celebration of #RealBreadWeek 2016, I would like to share my top 10 sourdough recipes.
Best sourdough recipes for Real Bread Week
Real Bread Week is an annual event by the Real Bread Campaign celebrating real bread and its makers. While real bread can be leavened with commercial yeast or sourdough starter, I’d like to dedicate this real bread tribute to sourdough loaves specifically. Slow-fermented loaves of sourdough bread, using naturally-occurring lactobacilli and yeasts, are my favourite.
Top 10 sourdough bread recipes
- Pain de Campagne
Made from a combination of white, wholemeal and rye flour, pain de campagne is a wonderful loaf of sourdough with a chewy crumb and rustic crust.
- Sourdough Wholewheat Pita Bread
A perfect choice for all your Middle Eastern salads, meat dishes and dips.
- Black Treacle Sourdough
Distinctively dark, intensely rich and distinctively bitter-sweet, this black treacle sourdough bread tastes great with smoked salmon, cream cheese and dill pickled cucumber.
- German Sunflower Seed Sourdough
A delicious loaf of rye-based bread infused with the nutty flavours of dry-roasted sunflower seeds.
- German Pumpernickel
Authentic German pumpernickel, a very rich and heavy bread, made from whole rye berries and cracked rye and baked for 14 hours at a low heat.
- Danish Seeded Rye Sourdough
A seeded sourdough option, using sunflower seeds, flax seeds, oats and cracked rye.
- 100% Rye Sourdough
A nostalgic craving for all-rye breads is why I started baking bread. These sticky rye doughs will reward with superb moisture and flavour.
- 100% Wholemeal Spelt Sourdough
A wonderful recipe for those fond of spelt – light, highly nutritious with an appealing nutty flavour.
- Rhubarb Sourdough
Not sure what to do with all that rhubarb? Use stewed rhubarb as the liquid in your dough instead of water.

Add seaweed to your breads. This seaweed sourdough recipe provides a great way of integrating seaweed into your daily diet.
