Homemade bread - a simple recipe for wheat and rye sourdough bread

I love the smell of freshly baked bread. The home smelling of bread brings back childhood memories. I always bend over hot loaves, absorb their smell, which brings relief and inner peace.

It's only now that I realized that I don't have a single recipe for sourdough bread on my blog. It's time to change that, after all, I started my adventure with sourdough bread with simple rye loaves baked in fruit cakes.

Ingredients for two cake moulds, approximately 25 x 10 cm in size, or a few smaller ones like mine.
