    Although I too didn't get the sourdough taste out of this bread, it's still worth making. Mine came out in a perfect texture - best bread I've made yet. The taste was great too-my younger son and husband each had thirds! I also love that this is a low fat bread (2 points on Weight Watchers if you divide into 20 servings). I also used Smart Balance Omega blend for the butter. I might try to find a more sour yogurt for the next time. Thanks for posting another great recipe!

    i am not going to rate this yet, i have to make it again. it came out very compact with alot of crust and didn't rise very much. the taste was also bland. i did follow the recipe exactly. i want this to work, i don't keep a sourdough starter around.

    Its delicious hot, but not brown. Its very doughy. I only had full-fat yoghurt and olive oil marjarine instead of butter, so perhaps that is the problem. It had risen then sunk down again.

    Loaf was too small and heavy. Rose nicely to begin with but began sinking in the centre just before the baking cycle started and sank even more during it. There's way too much yeast for this amount of flour I think (I am a trained chef by the way). I notice one review here suggests reducing the amount of yeast to 2 tsp, I may try again with that tweak, or even slightly less.

    I don't want to rate this, I may try it again. Mine came out like Chia said... compact, heavy, didn't really raise, only browned on the bottom.
