Soughdough Bread Recipe

Here is the basic bread recipe I use.
2 c. soughdough starter
2 T. oil
4 t. sugar
1 t. salt
3 c. all purpose flour

I only actually mix in  2 cups of flour. The third cup I knead into the dough. If you have a wetter dough, add it in the bowl. Knead bread approximately 5 minutes. Shape into a ball and place into a greased bowl. Turn the dough over in the bowl to make sure the top is oiled also. Cover with a towel and allow to rise. When you poke your finger into the dough and the hole does not fill back in, the dough has risen. Turn out onto the counter and knead 5 more minutes. Shape into loaf. Allow to rise again. Place into oven to bake at 350 degrees. Do not preheat the oven, but rather place the bread into a cold oven. Standard baking time is 30- 35 minutes. Bread is done when the top is golden and the bread makes a thumping noise when tapped. Watch the bottom to make sure it does not get dark, this is my problem area. This recipe has been a good sandwich bread, little crumb when sliced. 

I am blessed. ~Angela

That bread looks delicious; all you need is some cheese and a glass of wine.

This sounds delicious; I keep saying I need a sour dough starter but have I started one?...noooo. Lawz, that's just one more thing that needs feeding and it seems like all I do is feed mouths.
