Chris LOVES sour dough bread but I haven’t started any of the sour dough starter I need to make the real stuff. I really should get on that but I always forget. While this isn’t the real stuff by any means, it is still a good substitute when you don’t have any starter.
Here are my ingredients.
To start, I whisked together the water, sugar and yeast in the bowl of my stand mixer and let it sit until bubbly.
Next I added the sour cream and vinegar and whisked it all together.
Then added the flour and salt.
Using my dough hook, I mixed it until it formed into a smooth dough. I kneaded it for about 5 minutes before putting it in a greased and covered bowl to rise for about 45 minutes.
After it had finished rising I shaped it into a loaf and placed it in a greased pan to rise for another 15 to 20 minutes, while the oven heated up to 375 degrees.
I baked it for about 25 minutes, removed it from the oven/pan and sliced it up still warm for dinner!
