    yogurt substitute for pumpernickle starter needed!

    Mon Apr 08, 2013 5:00 pm Groupie
    I have a recipe for pumpernickle bread that has an overnight starter. My trouble is that I have no yogurt, 2T are required. What can I substitute for the yogurt as I really want to make the bread tomorrow?

    You could use sour cream or kefir. Or possibly even just milk.

    I'm not sure plain milk would work. icon_confused.gif
    I suspect the starter needs the live bacteria/cultures from the yogurt, sour cream or kefir to activate/ferment the starter.

    I figured that the culture was needed from the yogurt.....I'll just have to wait 'til tomorrow night and hit the store tomorrow. Thanks for your help. I need to learn patience....patience......patience!

    I've seen some starters that use milk. Without the recipe, it's hard to tell. Yogurt or kefir would be the most likely candidates, though.
