Sourdough Bread
Yield: 4 loaves

1 c sourdough starter
2 c warm water
2 1/2 cups flour

1 T butter
2 c warm milk
1 pkg active dry yeast
1/4 c honey
7 c flour
1/4 c wheat germ
2 T sugar
2 ts salt
2 ts baking soda
additional flour

Mix the starter and 2 1/2 cups of the flour and all the water the
night before you want to bake. Let stand in warm place overnight.

Next morning mix in the butter with warm milk and stir in yeast
until until dissolved. Add honey and when thoroughly mixed, add
2 more cups of flour, and stir in the wheat germ.

Sprinkle sugar, salt, and baking soda over the mixture. Gently
press into dough and mix lightly. Allow to stand from 30 to 50
minutes until mixture is bubbly. Add enough flour until the dough
cleans the sides of the bowl. Then place the dough on a lightly
floured board and kead 100 times or until silky mixture is developed.
Form into 4 1-lb loaves, place in well-greased loaf pans 9 x 3
size. Let rise until double, about 2 to 3 hours in a warm room.

Then bake in hot oven, 400 degrees F, for 20 minutes. Reduce oven
temp. to 325 degrees F. and bake 20 minutes longer or until
thoroughly baked. Remove from pans and place loaves on rack to
cool. Butter tops of loaves to prevent hard crustyness.
