Easy Quick Starter Bread Recipe

My niece, Alexandra, is visiting us from Romania for two weeks! We decided to make some home made bread together. We use a quick starter for this bread, which is new to me. Stay tuned because I’ll make a video about that soon! Thanks for watching!

Quick Starter Bread Recipe

Servings 2 Loafs



  • 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Cup tap water
  • ½ tsp. of instant rapid yeast
  • In a large bowl combine the flour water and yeast with wooden spoon or Danish whisk.
  • Mix for 1 minute until all dry ingredients are mixed
  • Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap
  • Leave at room temperature for at least 8 hours


  • 6 cups flour
  • 2 ½ Tbsp of yeast
  • 2 Tbsp of either brown or white sugar
  • 1 ¼ Tbsp of Salt
  • 2-3 Tbsp of neutral oil I use avocado oil
  • 3 Cups warm water


  • In a large bowl add 3 cups of the flour
  • Add all remaining Dough ingredients – includes the water
  • Mix for about 2 minutes – use Danish whisk
  • Now add all the starter
  • Mix for another 1 minute- use Danish whisk
  • Add one cup of flour and mix for 1 minute with Whisk
  • Do this 3 times until your flour is totally used
  • Put dough ball on counter and clean bowl and then grease with bacon fat or oil
  • Put dough back in bowl and let it rest for 1 hour, covered with plastic
  • After 1 hour punch down ball of dough in the bowl and then remove and put on counter
  • Light and fold edges of dough to the middle (Left to middle, right to middle, top down to middle, bottom up to middle)
  • Flip it into bowl and let rise another 30 minutes.
  • Divide dough in half and you will make 2 loaves
  • Put dough in bread pan
  • Preheat oven to 475
  • While oven is heating let the bread rise 20-30 minutes in the pan with top on pan
  • Put bread into oven and reduce temperature to 425
  • Bake for 30 minutes
  • Remove the top of the bread pan
  • If not brown leave it another 5-10 minutes to get the required color



If you do not have a clay covered bread pan put the dough into and uncovered bread pan and preheat to 375 and then bake both loaves together for 45 minutes or until golden brown
Let it rest at least 30 minutes before you slice it.
We use a starter for this because it makes the process longer. As a result, the bread tastes better and lasts longer.
