  • 25 g Active Sourdough starter
  • 100 g bread flour
  • 100 g water


  • 400 g All purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 40 g Honey
  • 206 g Leaven
  • 130 g milk I used full fat milk
  • 6 g salt
  • 30 g butter



  • Mix bread flour, active starter and water and mix well. Set aside at room temperature for 5 hours.


  • In a kitchen aid stand mixer add all the ingredients except the butter knead with dough hook to form a cohesive, sticky mass, 2 to 3 minutes on low speed of a stand mixer.
  • Gradually add butter and incorporate about 1 minute on low speed. Once all
  • the butter is incorporated, turn the mixer up one speed and knead the dough until it is smooth and supple though still somewhat soft and tacky, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Cover the dough and let it rest in a warm (75°F) place for 8 to 12 hours. To develop strength in the dough, stretch and fold it in the bowl three to four times during the rest. This will increase the elasticity of the dough.
  • Shape and Bake
  • Next morning divide 849g the dough into 15 pieces of 56.6 g each. Shape it into small round ball and place it in a parchment lined baking pan.
  • Set aside for proof of about 2 hours or until it becomes puffy.
  • Bake it in 375°F for 25- 30 minutes or until golden in color.
  • Enjoy, with bowl of soup, or as dinner rolls in Thanksgiving dinner table.
