I needed to use up some sourdough starter, so I thought I would give this a try. It rose beautifully, but I was not fond of the taste. I like a sweeter raisin bread, I may try to make again, adding a lot more cinnamon and sugar. Will update when I do.

This was great. I was not paying attention and actually added the ingredients in a slightly different order- putting the milk with the starter, but it turned out great. Fantastic whole wheat morning bread
