This made the best bread yet in my new bread machine. I used Diana Neal's starter recipe. The outside was crusty, the inside soft and chewy, and it had great flavor. I will make this on a regular basis.

I didn't have such good results with this recipe. It kind of caved in on itself during the baking or rising. The taste was ok and I cut off the top but not a pretty loaf of bread and very crusty. I will try this again and maybe add some sugar and more yeast to the recipe.

Really good recipe. Being Nora I can never make a recipe exactly as written...I used 2c. of white flour, 1/3c.-Wheat bran, and 1/3c. of flax seed meal. The bread turned out light and perfectly grained. My starter isn't very sour yet but it still had the distinct sourdough taste.
