    Linda's Note:

    This is a good sourdough bread for those of us who don't want to wait to make a traditional "starter." The vinegar, ginger and sour cream make it sour. I hope you enjoy it.

      Very good with a light texture, mild sour taste, and a golden crust. I used fat-free sour cream and baked it in one 9-inch springform pan, which made a pretty round loaf about 2-3/4-inches high. This is definitely a good substitute for making sourdough bread with a starter. Thanks for sharing, Linda.
