Quicker Sourdough Bread

Quicker Sourdough Bread

My experiences with sourdough convinced me that sourdough starter is a very versatile “ingredient” and I can produce very tasty and light breads with it.

Year ago knew sourdough bread only very dense dark breads, but… this is only the kind of bread I get here.

In Greece sourdough bread are different, different in the taste than the conventional yeast bread and very different than the sourdough bread in northern Europe.

I prepared this bread following the recipe “quicker sourdough bread ” on posted by Red Apple Guy.

The result is very stunning! Thanks a lot Red for posting your recipe!
