Excellent bread. Not my first attempt to make sourdough but one of the only ones to turn out great. Usually, I don't make bread in a bread tin but this rose very nice and very high. I made on loaf and a pan of cinnamon rolls. Loved it, will make again.

I made a half batch into one round loaf and it rose so big. Great smell, taste and looks! My only issue is that it did not taste like sourdough at all. Just a soft, fluffy white bread. I'm not sure if this is due to my starter or if this is because of the recipe. However, I enjoyed the bread nonetheless and my 3 year old kept coming back for more!

Great sourdough :)...I followed it best I could not having a mixer ;) or loaf pans ;) ;)- it was also a coldish damp day here {{in April in NJ-yikes i thought it was Spring already (!!!) }} - so I admit I had some rising issues to boot...BUT all in all, despite my own technical difficulties, I was SO VERY, very pleased with the results...:)- used olive oil, sea salt & added a cornmeal coating (extra of all 3 as topping too)...I forgot all about the melted butter, but I didn't feel I was missing anything...wonderful flavor (subtlety sweet 'cause of the Splenda-which was a pleasant surprise)...made a large flatish loaf that I cut into dinner rolls-deliciously crusty tops and airy melt in mouth interiors...super good...served with a veggie borscht and fermented slaw/kraut and a TON left over (froze some)...{{and just had one w/ tea as a late nite snack - :) lol...couldn't resist ;) }} made for "I Recommend" and yes I do recommend these... planning to make again asap...:) YUMMY!!!num num num!!! -Thanks for the recipe share ~Nimz~!! :)
