3 cups bread flour
3 tbs sugar (it was less than 1/4 cup but might have been more than 3 tbs. Just sweeten it to your personal preference.)
3/4 tsp salt
2 tbs olive oil
1 cup of my yeasty water
I mixed all the dry ingredients before adding the wet and then mixed it all with a giant fork. When the dough was still to sticky, I added more flour one tablespoon at a time until it wasn't sticky to the touch, but wasn't dry either. I then let it rise for about 40 minutes in a warmed oven with the door open and a damp towel on top. I kneaded and then transferred the dough to a loaf pan sprayed with Baker's Joy and once again let it rise in a warm oven with the door open. Once the dough was about an inch below the top of the pan, I took out the pan, heated the oven to 350 F and baked the bread for 40 min.
The bread rose nicely while baking and had very few large bubbles. It had just a hint of sweetness and great texture. It wasn't too fluffy or too dense.
Last night I made up a new starter using the same mix as before, but added an extra tsp of sugar and let it sit covered overnight. This morning, there was evidence of a middle-of-the-night starter explosion in the kitchen. I split out the mix into two jars and added warm water to bring each jar to the 1 cup mark and mixed in 2 tsp of sugar and 2 tsp of flour into each and mixed.
