No Knead Cinnamon Raisin Sourdough Bread! I know that the name of my blog is "Britney Breaks Bread" but I find it absolutely hilarious that I seldom post bread recipes. This is primarily because I am still practicing a lot of bread recipes and learning the science behind it. I began my sourdough starter in late March and decided to name it "Zeus". Befitting as I wanted it to be the ruler of all sourdough starters (ambitious, I know). The starter consists of whole wheat flour and filtered water, which took a bit of time to become active, but once the bacteria formed, it became strong and bubbly and ended up making this very delicious bread that is so easy to make!

There's a bit of a back story to my sourdough journey. When the pandemic began, no one could find yeast. It was insane. No supermarkets, speciality markets, farmers market, craigslist - no where. lol Given this, sourdough became "all the rave". Did I hop on that bandwagon? Absolutely! I love to bake but couldn't find yeast! I ALWAYS have fresh baked bread around the house. Always. So when I ran out of both instant and active dry yeast, I started Zeus.

So it's no secret, I love to bake. Check out my bread recipes! (HERE) As I mentioned above, my sourdough baking journey has been interesting. My first attempt tasted AMAZING but was flat. My second attempt rose and was perfectly shaped, but didn't taste quite like sourdough at all. I figured that there was no way that I wasted almost 7 days trying to perfect the baking process. It is not for the faint at heart!

So, I came up with this recipe. When I made my No-Knead Lemon and Herb Bread, I wondered - "Why not try the same thing with sourdough?!" So I did. And it came out perfectly. The first AND the second time. So I wrote it down and decided to post it. In addition, this bread is SO good. It's fluffy, yields a beautiful crumb, and with a little butter... wooo!!

and it came out perfectly...

Now granted, this recipe is not identical to my No-Knead Lemon and Herb Bread. However, it's just as easy. I simply put the ingredients together before bed and let it sit out. The next morning, turn the dough onto a floured surface, shape it, and add to a proofing basket. Then bake it! That's it!

One thing I will add that will make a huge difference.... MAKE SURE YOU ALLOW IT TO COOL! That's all. Other than that, this recipe is so perfect. For breakfast, for lunch, for whenever you want 🙂

No Knead Cinnamon Raisin Sourdough Bread

Serving: 12 servings
Prep Time: 30 mins
Cook Time: 45 mins
Calories: 170kcal

Ingredients

  • 350 grams whole wheat flour
  • 75 grams all-purpose flour
  • 200 grams sourdough starter
  • 300 grams warm water
  • 8 grams kosher salt
  • 4 grams cinnamon
  • 40 grams granulated sugar
  • 1 cup raisins

Directions

  • Combine sourdough starter and 300 grams of lukewarm water in a bowl and stir to break up starter.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, cinnamon, raisins, salt, and sugar. Pour the sourdough starter/water mixture into the bowl of flour and mix until combined. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise for at least 12-18 hours. The dough should double in size.
  • Dust a work surface with flour and remove the dough from the mixing bowl. Gently stretch the edges of the dough and fold them into the center of the dough, creating a loaf shape. Do this gently for about 6 pulls and then add to a banneton or bowl to proof for another 2 hours with the seam facing up.
  • Preheat the oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit. Add dutch oven with the lid into the oven to heat for 30 minutes.
  • Cut a piece of parchment paper and place onto the counter top. Spray with oil and add dough to parchment paper. Grab parchment paper and add to dutch oven. Cover with lid and bake for 30 minutes. Then remove the lid and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
  • Allow the bread to cool for at least 30 minutes to an hour.
