Discard Sourdough sandwich bread

This sandwich bread is fluffy, delicious and best of all keeps for a full week on my counter in sandwich bag! (you can find all my favorite sourdough things here like the sandwich bags I use)


500 grams of water or milk! (if using water make it warm. If using milk heat to 105 degrees)

200 grams of starter [discard or bubbly works]

14 grams active yeast

40 grams sugar [can be honey but I use coconut sugar]

20 grams salt

1,000 grams bread flour [could use all purpose]

120 grams melted butter


  1. Add warm water or milk to mixer with coconut sugar and yeast. Mix lightly and let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Add in sourdough starter and mix fully
  3. Add in every other ingredient and let the mixer knead the dough for a few minutes or knead by hand until fully combined
  4. Leave covered with a towel for 1 hour
  5. Put dough on counter and split into two even rounds. Roll out your dough on counter and shape into sandwich loaves
  6. I usually make a normal loaf for sandwiches and as you can see in the pictures I also make a savory or sweet one! This one was coconut sugar and pumpkin spice. I just place it in the dough as I'm rolling it out and folding it into the shape of sandwich loaf!
  7. Bake in oven at 350 degrees for 40 minutes
  8. Let fully cook before cutting into it
  9. I pre-slice my bread and place in sandwich bread bags and leave it in my bread box on the counter for up to a week with no mold or hardening!
