  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.
