Sourdough Bread

To Make Starter:
3/4 cup sugar
3 Tbs. instant potato flakes
1 cup warm water
1 envelope (or 1 Tbs.) yeast

Mix all ingredients and let stand 8-10 hours or until mixture is frothy on top. In between feedings, the starter should be stored in the refrigerator.

Feed Starter:
3/4 cup sugar
3 Tbs. instant potato flakes
1 cup warm water

After feeding starter, let stand out of frig, all day (8-10 hrs.). Will be very bubbly. Take one cup for bread and return rest to frig. You should feed every 3 to 5 days. Always take one cup out after it is fed and sits all day.

Make Bread:
Make stiff batter of:
1 cup starter
1 Tbs. Salt
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups warm water
1/2 cup corn oil
6 cups Pillsbury bread flour

Mix all of the above together. Grease a large bowl, put dough in and turn over to grease the top. Loosely cover and let rise overnight or all day.

After rising, punch down and divide into 3 parts. *

Knead each part 8 to 10 times. Put into 3 greased loaf pans. Let stand 4 to 6 hrs or until risen. All day is fine.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 mins. Remove from oven and brush with melted butter.

* May add cinnamon or whatever when kneading the 3 parts before putting into pans.

  3. I used to make a bread just like this about 12 years ago, but my starter died and I didn’t know how to make a new one. I am so thankful that you posted this! I used to roll mine out and put butter, cinnamon and sugar on it than roll it up and put it into the pan to rise. It was really good like that, and yes, it will all be eaten in one sitting if you cut it when it’s warm;-)

    In Him,

  4. We LOVE LOVE bread and I’ve tried a couple of sourdoughs before and they weren’t all that fantabulous. I will definitely try this and let you know! I’ll be starting it tonite before bed. Would you happen to have a “less sweet” Amish Friendship Bread recipe by chance? The 2 I have are way to sweet for our liking. Blech! I remember when I was YOUNG trying one that was about perfect. Unforunately, I don’t have that recipe anymore. 🙁
