Multi-Grain Sourdough Bread


Here's a delicious recipe for homemade bread. Since making this bread, I no longer buy sandwich bread, but make this once a week instead. Enjoy!

1 cup fed sourdough starter
1 cup lukewarm water
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons instant yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon King Arthur Whole-Grain Bread Improver
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup instant potato flakes
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup Harvest Grain Blend

In large bowl, combine all ingredients. Beat with dough hook and mix until combined. Continue to knead for 5-7 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl and cover with greased plastic wrap. Allow to rise for 1 1/2 - 2 hours until double. 

Grease 8x4" bread pan. Shape dough into a log. Place in pan and cover. Allow to rise until double, 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and turn out onto wire rack to cool. Makes 1 loaf.
