Once you have an established sourdough starter, this bread is easy to make. Be prepared to wait, however, as the first rise occurs overnight.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1 cup sourdough starter
- 1 1/2 cups warm water
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup corn oil
- 6 cups bread flour
Mix sugar, corn oil, salt, water, and 1 cup of sourdough starter together in a large bowl. Sift the flour and add to the mixture. Grease or oil the dough. Place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover, and let rise overnight.
The next day, knead the dough for 10 minutes. Divide in half, and place into two greased 4 x 8 inch bread pans. Allow the dough to double in size.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 40 to 45 minutes, or until bread is golden brown and taps hollow. Turn out to cool on wire racks.
