Sourdough White for the Bread Machine

READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by Karen From Colorado

Yes, sourdough can be made in your machine. Be patient and experiment with this very independent bread. Remember that every starter is different so this can be a challenge, but you can develope your own style until it is an art form.

excellent texture, crust and flavor. as this was my first sourdough without a yeast booster, i was skeptical. this made a believer out of me!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine ingredients in the order given.
  2. Bake on regular cycle.
  3. A note about starters; Sourdough purists may omit the yeast listed above; the more active the starter is, the less yeast you'll need.
  4. Starter should be peaking when loaded into your machine, frothy and bubbly, not just foamy.
  5. Optimum room temp for culture activation and machine baking is 85 degrees.
