Preparazione 30 min
Cottura 30 min
Tempo totale 6 h
Porzioni 1 loaf


  • 250 g flour whole wheat
  • 60 g sourdough
  • 125 ml water
  • 50 ml agave nectar or natural apple juice
  • 50 g raisins
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Let soak raisins in warm water. Meanwhile put the sourdough in a large bowl and dissolve it into the water.
  • Add the flour and start kneading, then add the apple juice or agave, oil, drained raisins and salt. Work with your hands until you get a smooth and homogeneous dough, cover the bowl with a clean cloth and let rise until doubled (2 to 3 hours).
  • Knead the bread dough and shape it into a loaf, place it in the pan where you will bake it lined with parchment paper. Let the loaf rise for about 3 hours.
  • Bake your sweet bread in a preheated oven at 325°F for 30 minutes. Remove and let it cool down completely before serving.


You can turn this whole wheat sweet sourdough bread (or leftovers) into delicious rusks: just cut it into slices and bake them at 300°F for about 20 minutes, turning halfway. Keep the rusks into a jar glass or cookie tin where they'll keep fresh at least for two weeks.
