I also made the bread into 16 rolls and they were perfect. I baked them for 15 minutes at 425 degrees and they were crisp and golden brown outside and light and fluffy inside. Not eating them all before dinner is the only problem with these rolls!

I love this bread. I use fresh chopped chives straight from my garden.

Loved this savoury sour-dough bread. Instead of the milk-water-sour cream combo, I substituted plain old soured milk (same quantity: 280ml). And when I ran short on chives, in went minced leek! I loved the look of the green flakes in the bread. This recipe calls for only half as much sugar as the last sour-dough loaf I made, so the kids didn't rave about this one as much, but it is a quality savoury-loaf recipe and there is no reason why I wouldn't make this again!
