NOTES : It is very important that your starter be a fast one and
very
active. That is why I highly recommend that you
purchase the
Russian culture from Sourdough International
(http://www.sourdo.com) it is the only one I have
found that is
fast enough to work in the bread machine without
commerical yeast,
which you do not want to use. You need to make
sure that your
starter has been activated correctly and is ready
to go. See last
weeks recipe and handout at

http://www.breadmachinedigest.com/recipe_club.html

to download the
information for getting your starter going.

I made the bread the other day using the Russian
culture and it
came out wonderfully without using any commerical
yeast. If your
using another starter like one the did yourself or
you don't know
how fast your culture is make this recipe and see
what it does.
You should end up with a loaf like any other white
bread made with
commercial yeast. If you end up with a short
stubby loaf and you
don't want to purchase the Russian culture then
you can add 1 tsp
of instant active dry yeast to this recipe. Never
ever add
commerical yeast or any thing other than flour and
water to your
culture.

  • Can I just say Yum! my machine makes a smaller loaf so I divided this recipe in half. My starter is one I made myself, and what I did different cause my house tends to get cold is to let the 2nd stage rise overnight.
    Oh and I also replace the oil with butter, and used self rising flour on the 2nd half. every other recipe that I’ve tried my machine has had trouble baking it, the center was being doughy, not this recipe, now that I turned my oven on without needing it, I’ll go and turn it off. Oh and my starter doesn’t rise fast, that’s ok, cause I got a good sourdough taste.

  • If I order the Russian sour dough starter do you know if they give instructions on how to keep it going? What do you do to keep your starter alive?
