Bread making tips forum: Looking for a Sourdough bread recipe
Views: 22, Replies: 5 » Jump to the end
I am living in China for a few years, I need to make our own bread and my husband's favorite is the sourdough of San Francisco. Is there any tip and help to start from culture to the baked bread preferably in a bread machine, thank you for any help you give me.
|Unless you get a San Francisco sourdough starter from someone, your sourdough won't taste like sourdough made in San Francisco. The reason is, starters pick up their unique taste from the yeast organisms indiginous to the region, free in the air. I'm posting from my phone right now, but will come back later with some links for you regarding preferments/starters. :)|
I don't own a bread machine so don't have a personal recipe for using a machine but did find these 4 U.
1 1/4 cups sourdough starter
3/4 cup warm water
4 cups bread flour
1 3/4 teaspoons salt
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 3/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
Place ingredients in the bread machine pan in the order suggested by the manufacturer.
Select Basic bread cycle and start machine.
Makes one (2 pound) loaf.

|the King Arthur flour website has 3 pages of Sourdough recipes. from cake to breads.
so far, everything Ive tried has been exceptional. I like the rustic one the best.
My next house will have no kitchen - just vending machines and a large trash can.

|I found a no-knead sourdough bread on You Tube. It uses 1 cup of starter, 1 cup of water, 2 teaspoons of salt and 3 cups of flour. I bake it in a crockery chicken cooker and although I am still tweaking the baking time, it turns out really beautiful! Here is the YouTube video (it is unique). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POnxAoHl1qc I am so proud that I take a picture of each loaf. LOL!
