  • Warm the KA bowl by filling with hot water, dumping it out and towel dry.

  • Let stand 5 minutes.
  • On speed 1, stir in sourdough starter, sugar, salt, eggs, oil and 3 cups flour.
  • Gradually add remaining flour or enough that the dough will separate from the sides of the mixing bowl. This should take about 8 minutes.

  • Place loaves in greased 9x5x3 inch loaf pans.
  • Brush top with oil.
  • Cover loaves; let rise in a warm place (85 degrees F), free from drafts, about 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.
