Print this Recipe    Sour Dough Bread Starter

1/2 cup instant potato flakes
2 cups warm water
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 package yeast

Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup of warm water. Add remaining ingredients
and stir well. Keep at room temperature for 24 hours. Put into
refrigerator until ready to use. Take out and feed with the
following:

1/4 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons instant potato flakes
1 cup warm water

Mix well and add to starter. Let stand out of refrigerator all
day. (8 to 12 hours) Mixture will be bubbly. Take out one cup
to make bread and return remainder to refrigerator. Keep in
refrigerator three to five days and feed again. If not making
bread after feeding starter, throw away one cup or give to a friend.
This is to avoid deflating your starter.


Sour Dough Bread

1/4 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon salt
1/2 cup corn oil
1 cup starter
1 1/2 cups warm water
6 cups bread flour

In large bowl, mix the ingredients and make a stiff batter. Grease
another large bowl, put in dough and turn over (oily side on top).
Cover with foil and let stand overnight. Do not refrigerate. Next
morning punch down dough and knead a little. Divide into three
equal parts and knead each part on a floured surface eight to ten
times. Put into three greased loaf pans and brush with oil. Cover
with waxed paper. Let rise four to five hours--or all day. Bake
at 350 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes, depending on your oven. Remove
and brush with butter. Cool on rack. Wrap and store well in
refrigerator. Bread may be frozen. Can also be made into rolls
instead of loaves.

Blessed Sour Dough Bread - once again, July 29, 2004 - 04:57 PM
Reviewer: Nanette Presnell from Cleveland, GA, USA
Years ago I had a great "starter" and over time let it die. Searching the internet I found many recipes for the starter but this is the only one that was almost like the one I use to make (mine called for 3/4 cup sugar when feeding the starter). The bread is great and friends love it! I'm so thrilled. If I let this starter die, I know I can always "start" again. Thanks.

THIS IS SO WONDERFUL!!!, September 2, 2005 - 10:07 PM
Reviewer: Anonymous from Sayre, PA
A LOT of years ago I had a starter given to me. We enjoyed it so much and I never could find how to make it. This one looked so easy so thought I'd try it and I'll NEVER be without this bread again. My family devours it! I will ALWAYS have this starter on hand and ALWAYS have fresh bread from the oven for my family to enjoy. Thank you so much!

What a flavor!, January 1, 2006 - 04:59 PM
Reviewer: Sue Sams from Memphis Tn.
This starter and recipe make baking bread fun. I mainly use it to make rolls because the flavor is outstanding. My family and friends just can't get enough. Makes me proud to serve them.
