    todgeimer's Note:

    This recipe gives a slightly dense bread with a slightly chewy crust and a little tang from the sour dough, depending entirely on your sourdough. A “San Francisco” sourdough starter is appropriate for this recipe.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 10


    Two Pou ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 236.59 ml sourdough starter, you must have a starter available
    • 177.44 ml water, warm about 110F
    • 14.79 ml sugar
    • 14.79 ml active dry yeast (not rapid rise yeast)
    • 709.77 ml bread flour
    • 44.37 ml oil
    • 9.85 ml salt


    1. 1
      Put first 4 ingredients in bread machine and stir gently. (yes, this works…).
    2. 2
      Let sit for about 10 minutes. Starter should start to bubble a little.
    3. 3
      Add flour, then spread oil and salt evenly over the flour.
    4. 4
      Select basic course or following custom settings if your bread maker has them:.
    5. 5
      Custom settings for Zojirushi BB-CEC20: Preheat - 20 Minutes ( I start cycle after mixing first four ingredients then add remaining three ingredients after ten minutes), Knead - 20 minutes, Rise1 - 40 minutes, Rise2 - 40 minutes, Rise3 - OFF, Bake - 58 minutes Medium or Dark crust setting ( I use medium), Keep warm - OFF.
    6. 6
      Check a few minutes into kneading and add flour or water as needed to get a just slightly tacky dough that sticks to your fingers like a strong post it note and stretches smoothly without tears when kneading. Sourdough bread dough is a little gloopier then regular white bread.
    7. 7
      See directions for making a starter or order a starter online.
    8. 8
      Like all sourdough breads wait until at room temperature before cutting or insides will clump up and tear the insides out of the loaf.

      Wow just wonderful! I live at a higher altitude and have had many failed breads but this one was wonderful. Actually my family ate a whole loaf one night. I have made several since. Thanks

      We've cooked a number of recipes in our Zojirushi breadmaker. This is the one that made it clear it was a good purchase. I could just sit down and eat a loaf of this by itself and be happy.<br/><br/>Thanks for this recipe, I see this one being a regular one for our family.
