INGREDIENTS:

1 cup sourdough starter (http://www.eatapedia.com/recipes/sourdough_starter)
2 eggs (I use the “free run” eggs because I don’t like battery cages for hens, but that is me…)
1/3 cup sugar (or honey or molasses (whatever sweetener you like))
1/3 cup olive oil (could substitute canola or even butter if you want)
1/2 teaspoon Salt
3 2/3 cup unbleached flour (can go up to 5 cups)

DIRECTIONS:

Add all ingredients, in this order, to your bread machine & use the dough setting.

If dough is too moist after beginning of mixing, add more flour; if it is too dry, add warm water by the tablespoon.

Once kneed cycle is done in the machine turn out onto a lightly floured surface, cut into two equal sized balls.

Place in slightly oiled bread pans, cover with moist clean cloth and let rise in warm (not hot) place. I let mine rise for 24 hours and they nicely doubled in size.

Bake at 350 F for 30 to 35 minutes

NOTES:

the loaf in the pictures was allowed to rise in a warm (not hot) location for about 12 hours before I cooked it. Sometimes, depending on the temp in the house it’ll rise more quickly than others.
