Sourdough bread without using a starter. The yogurt does it. It makes a very tasty loaf of bread. One of our favorites.

Although I too didn't get the sourdough taste out of this bread, it's still worth making. Mine came out in a perfect texture - best bread I've made yet. The taste was great too-my younger son and husband each had thirds! I also love that this is a low fat bread (2 points on Weight Watchers if you divide into 20 servings). I also used Smart Balance Omega blend for the butter. I might try to find a more sour yogurt for the next time. Thanks for posting another great recipe!

I made this with plain yogurt and it worked really well.

Still might miss the true Sourdough Bread this is well worth making. I followed exactly using active dry yeast, french bread setting 1.5 lb loaf. Nice and high, full of air holes, and a great crust!
