The Simplest Sourdough you could ever make! Is it as good as true sourdough? Not really, but it is very close with only a portion of the time and effort sourdough requires.
This truly is a very simple just throw all the ingredients in your mixer, with the beater paddle to start, then switch to the dough hook and knead it for 7 minutes. You could likely use a bread machine to mix the dough as well, but I haven't tried it.
4.5 cups Unbleached Flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2.5 teaspoons salt
1 2/3 cups of lukewarm water
THE SECRET INGREDIENT
1 package (18 gms) Platinum Instant Sourdough (Yeast and Sourdough Culture) If your grocery store doesn't have this you can order it on Amazon.
