- 2 Large Bowls
- 1 Small Bowl
- 1 Small Pot
- 1 Measuring Cup
- Baking Paper
- 1 Baking Tray
- 1 Cake Tray
- 1 Spoom
- 500g Organic plain flour
- 1.5 Tsp Salt
- 1/2 Cup Starter culture
- 1.5 Cups Water

- Feed your starter culture in the morning on the day you are going to bake your bread. To feed, combine 1/2 cup of starter with approx 1/2 cup of flour and 1/2 cup of water. Melt 4 grams of your cacao disk and mix into your starter mix. Once combined, set aside for 4 hours. Your starter should be thick and bubbly.
- Melt the remainder of your cacao disk in a small pot on the stove, slowing adding the water you have measured until you have a thin paste. Set aside and let cool.
- Place the flour and salt into a large bowl, slowly add the starter mixture followed by the melted cacao. Stir to combine until the dough is pulling away from the side to form a firm ball. Cover and leave for approximately 10-14 hours (10 if you are in a warm climate, 14 if it's cooler).
- Scrape the dough out onto a floured surface and stretch it out to form a rectangle about 1cm thick. Roll up into a long sausage then roll the sausage in on itself to form a snail-like ball.
- Place into a large, ovenproof, lightly oiled bowl and leave for 1.5 hours.
- After 1 hour, set your oven to 240C and fill a baking tray with hot water. place on the bottom shelf of your oven and a bread or cake tray on the shelf above.
- After 30 mins, remove the top tray and dust it with gluten-free flour and tip the dough into it. Put in the oven and bake for 35 mins. Turn down the oven to 180C and bake for a further 15 mins.
- Remove and let cool on a wire rack for 2 hours.
