REALLY sticky bread dough!
I've tried making the basic sourdough bread recipe from The Bread Bible a couple of times with questionable results. The book says that the dough will be sticky.....major understatement! I keep ending up with a completely uncontrollable mess that refuses to stiffen up even with a considerable amount of added flour. I am using all-purpose flour instead of bread flour and am wondering if that would be the cause for the dismal dough.
I'm also trying to find a good, basic sourdough bread recipe that doesn't have any added yeast (feels like I'm cheating when I add it). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
