Sourdough French Bread

1/2 tb Yeast
1 ts Salt
2 1/4 c Bread Flour
1/2 c Water; Tepid
1 c Sourdough Starter
1 Tbl Sugar


Yields 1 Loaf

Add all the ingredients to the pan in the sequence listed. Select "French Bread". Press "Start". Slowly drizzle the water into the machine while it is running. Add water until the dough forms a rough ball which cleans the sides of the pan. If there is a wet smear under the dough paddle, slowly add flour until the smear is gone. Let the dough knead for a few minutes. There should be no wet smear under the dough paddle and the dough should have a slightly tacky feel to it (your finger should come away clean). If the dough feels dry instead of slightly tacky, add a just a few drops of water. NOTE: You may replace 1/2 cup of bread flour with 1/2 cup of rye flour and add 1 teaspoon of caraway seed to make a sourdough rye bread.
