“I decided to make my own Sourdough Recipe with rich Buttermilk, and I have entered this into my personal recipes. I developed this recipe which has worked out well from the 1st loaf, and just seems "fool-proof", and very tasty. Once your Sourdough is the flavor you like best, you can jar it and put it into the refrigerator in 10 ounce portions and use a complete jar each loaf you make in the breadmaker. VERY QUICK and SO EASY!”
1 Loaf (1.5#)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spray your bread pan with Olive Oil spray and add ingredients in this order:
  2. 10 ounces of Sourdough Starter.
  3. 4-6 ounces (about ½ cup) Warm water (not hot).
  4. ½ tsp salt.
  5. 2 TBSP Sugar.
  6. Once you have all these ingredients in bottom of pan add the flour on top and make a slight hole in the middle to add yeast and cover with flour
  7. Don’t upset the wet ingredients with flour or yeast.
  8. 3 ¼ cups BREAD Flour.
  9. 1 ½ tsp Yeast (I have used BEER yeast in blocks you can get at some grocer’s, this is great too).
  10. In Bread Maker Machine:
  11. Bake as a normal (white) loaf with desired crust color.
  12. I always check the blending to be certain it is not too wet or too dry – you can adjust with water or bread flour – you can even remove the (lump) from the breadmaker and hand knead for a minute on floured countertop.
  13. There should be no problem for this dough to rise and cook nicely.
  14. Lastly, once it’s DONE – be there to remove from pan ASAP. (If it sits the moisture in the breadmaker can deform loaf and make soggy.).
