Sourdough Brown Bread

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Kater

This is something I came up with when I had some leftover proofed sourdough starter that I needed to use up. And it turned out to be yummy! I used my KitchenAid mixer to mix and knead the dough, but I suppose you could make this dough in your bread machine, then pull it out, shape it and bake in the oven. Note: Prep time does not include rising time.

This is a wonderful bread with a touch of sweetness. I increased the ratio of white to wheat flour and used sorghum molasses in place of regular molasses. Mixed this up using my KitchenAid. I really enjoyed the fact that you mix it in the mixer and it only has one rise. Makes quick work of bread baking.
