Sourdough Bread

Sourdough Bread

So, the sourdough starter I posted last night is needed to make this bread. And this bread dough is needed to make the cinnamon rolls, follow the steps through to dividing in half. It takes a little time, but it is so worth it! Makes good sandwiches and makes good roll substitute for any meal! Happy Baking! These loaves can also be wrapped and given to friends as gifts this upcoming holiday season! :)

Sourdough Bread

  • 6 cups bread flour
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup sourdough starter
  • 1 pkg active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (120 - 130 degrees)
  • 1 TBSP salt
-- Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Gradually stir in oil and remaining ingredients.

-- Turn dough out onto a floured surface; knead lightly 4 - 5 times. Place in a well bowl, turn to grease top. Cover and let rise 2 hours or until doubled.

-- For bread, punch down, divide in half, shape each portion into a loaf, place in lightly greased loaf pans, brush tops with 2 tbsp melted butter, cover and let rise one hour or until doubled.

-- Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until loaves sound hollow when tapped. Remove from pans immediately and cool on wire racks.

-- For rolls, punch down, divide into half, shape each half into 12 balls, place in a greased 8 inch round cake pan. Brush tops with butter. Cover. Let rise one hour or until doubled. Bake 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.
