SOURDOUGH BREAD

SOURDOUGH BREAD

This is one of the best recipes for sourdough bread! I’ve used this recipe in the bread machine and I have allowed the bread machine to do the work – then baked it in the oven, both ways turn out great each time!

1 1/4 cups sourdough starter
1/3 cup water
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
2-1/4 teaspoons yeast

If your starter has been in the refrigerator allow it to come to room temperature.
Place all ingredients in the bread machine in the order suggested by the manufacturer.
Select Basic or White Bread cycle, and Medium crust setting. Start.

OR

Use the dough setting – when the dough cycle is done place dough in a loaf pan or baking sheet – shape and allow the dough to rise for 45 minutes to an hour and a half, or until it is doubled in size. A good indication that it has risen enough is if the dough has risen a little past the top of the pan. Preheat your oven about 20 minutes before the bread will finish its rise.

Place loaf in the preheated oven. The temperature depends on the types of bread; consult a bread cookbook to find the most similar type of bread to your recipe. Typically, doughs that are made with whole grains or large amounts of rich ingredients like butter or eggs will bake at 350 or 375º. The bread will probably take 30 to 40 minutes to bake; check it for doneness after 30 minutes. Bread will be done when its crust is firm and browned, and the underside of the loaf is also firm and makes a hollow sound when tapped. Remove the bread from the pan immediately and cool on a rack.
