  1. Mix all ingredients in a bread machine using the Manual cycle. That's usually two mix cycles of approximately 15 to 20 minutes with the rise cycle between them of about an hour.
  2. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Form the dough into a single round loaf. Place the loaf on a baking stone or baking sheet which has been lightly oiled and sprinkled with cornmeal. Cover loaf and let rise in a warm place until nearly doubled in size, about 40 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 30 minutes, until golden brown and loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Let cool on a wire rack.

This was really a good recipe. Probably the best basic sourdough recipe I have tried. And I have tried quite a few. At first I hesitated on the amount of yeast, but I have made this twice now...

I've just found my signature sourdough recipe! I can see why it won an award 3 years in a row. The best response came from my husband who said "Now this looks & tastes like professional bread"!

I can't believe *I* made this! This recipe gives you one amazing loaf - w/ a thick, flavorful crust outside and a light, fluffy bread tucked away inside. Although I used a young starter (only 5 ...

Great recipe. We've learned to make the slashes in the top very deep as the crust tends to split.

This produced a fragrant, tangy, loaf of bread that is soft inside with a nice crust. My Mom & I just sampled a piece, and it is wonderful. Very simple recipe; I like the addition of milk, butte...

This recipe is just great. I do use an egg wash for a nice brown crust, and I didn't have wheat germ, so I use 3T of vital wheat gluten instead. I've been baking this bread once a week for over...

This bread is wonderful! Nice texture and good zing from my starter. I made the dough in my bread machine and then divided it into rolls, cooked some and froze the rest. I could have eaten ev...

Very good recipe. Should be made into two loaves though and not one. I did the just one and I had an enormous loaf of bread!! :)
