Mock Sourdough Bread (Bread Machine)

This bread has an AWESOME sourdough taste, but you don't need to bother with a complicated, time-consuming starter. We make it in our bread machine ALL the time, especially when we have soup, which is often. I could eat soup 3 meals a day!!!

2/3 cup water
2 tablespoons white vinegar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 cups bread flour
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast

In bread machine pan, place all ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. (usually liquids first, then dry ingredients, ending with yeast last). Select basic bread setting on machine. Choose crust color and loaf size if available. Bake according to bread machine directions (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing, and add 1 to 2 tablespoons of either flour or water if needed.)

Note: if your bread machine has a time-delay feature, it's recommended that you don't use it, because the sour cream may spoil if it sits too long unrefrigerated in the machine.

Yield: 1 loaf (1 1/2 pounds).

Enjoy! Aaron

  1. I stumbled on this recipe quite by accident & was intrigued by the ingredients. My bread machine has been tucked away for quite some time as I have never really been too impressed with the bread from it. But I had to try this recipe out of curiosity so I drug it out of the depths & put it to work. WOW. I just finished enjoying my second slice & I can't get over the results. This is not only the best bread my machine has ever produced but probably one of the best loaves of homemade bread I have ever made & believe me I have made some nice bread in my time. The texture is so soft & uniform (not a hole to be found) & the taste is incredible. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Looks like my bread machine is back in business because I will be making lots of these loaves. I'll be checking out your other bread recipes. Hopefully I will find another one to interchange with this one.
