I used this recipe to make buns and they turned out fantastic. We love the texture and slight crispness to the outside crust. I've found so many wonderful bread recipes on this site ... my family no longer want bought bread or buns! Thanks for a great post.

This wasnt sour at all to me, so the next time I will leave the starter longer than overnight. I used dough cycle as four cups flour was too much for my bread machine to bake. When I let it rise on baking sheet, it spread more than rose upwards, the texture came out to be a dry crumb . Update: was very dry the next morning, only good for crunchy toast or a bread pudding. I ground it up for bread crumbs.
