How to Make Sourdough Bread

Sourdough Bread Recipe

1⁄2 cup warm water
1 teaspoon active dry yeast
1⁄2 cup sourdough starter
2 tablespoons sugar
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 egg
3 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour 

Combine warm water (about 110°F) and yeast in large mixing bowl and stir. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes, or until frothy.

Add sourdough starter, sugar, salt, butter and egg, and stir well.

Add most of flour to sourdough starter and stir until a ball forms. Turn out onto floured surface and knead for 5 minutes, gradually adding remaining flour until it’s all incorporated. Place dough in oiled bowl, turning over once to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise at room temperature for 2 hours.
