Recipe:

Mix 100 g mature starter thoroughly with 50 g water and 50 g flour then set aside for overnight.

Saute two diced red onion and allow it to cool. Mix 200 ml of the revived starter with 340 g flour, 135 ml water and a one tsp of salt. Mix in the cooled onion and knead it well. Leave it to rise for about six hours.

After this first proving knock the dough back and shape as desired for a second, final rise  for eight hours. /To avoid loosing air after the second rise, it is advised to shape dough into a loaf-tin or dish that the bread will be baked in./

After the second rise bake it in pre-heated, 200c oven for 50-60 minutes.
