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!

Excellent taste and texture. Crust was crisp but not too thick. I did have to add water during the mixing as it was very dry. I'm not sure if it didn't rise much or just a small loaf but it didn't even come to the top of my 1.5 lb loaf pan (or maybe it dropped a bit as the top was kind of flat). Anyway, was still delicious and will be making again. I may try on the French Loaf setting for longer rise time (or might be better when my starter is more active -it's still pretty

Excellent recipe, only problem was my loaves (tried it 3 times) fell a bit too much at the end of bread machine cycle. However, not enough of a problem for me to stop making this bread. Thanks, Karen.

Outstanding! My first loaf far exceeded my expectations. I varied somewhat and just used the machine for the mixing and the first rise. (unplug the machine after the mixing) I brushed the top with eggwhite and water mixture the last 15 min. of baking. What a beautiful loaf! Many Thanks

Very easy and yummy! I halved the recipe because my starter only yields 1 cup so I ended up with a cute little one pound loaf of moist fragrant sourdough bread! I did use yeast because I was unsure if my starter was active enough to rise the bread. The crust is crusty and the inside is moist and lightly sour. A real great recipe! Even for a beginner like me! Thanks Karen!
