Excellent bread. Not my first attempt to make sourdough but one of the only ones to turn out great. Usually, I don't make bread in a bread tin but this rose very nice and very high. I made on loaf and a pan of cinnamon rolls. Loved it, will make again.

I made a half batch into one round loaf and it rose so big. Great smell, taste and looks! My only issue is that it did not taste like sourdough at all. Just a soft, fluffy white bread. I'm not sure if this is due to my starter or if this is because of the recipe. However, I enjoyed the bread nonetheless and my 3 year old kept coming back for more!

Great sourdough :)...I followed it best I could not having a mixer ;) or loaf pans ;) ;)- it was also a coldish damp day here {{in April in NJ-yikes i thought it was Spring already (!!!) }} - so I admit I had some rising issues to boot...BUT all in all, despite my own technical difficulties, I was SO VERY, very pleased with the results...:)- used olive oil, sea salt & added a cornmeal coating (extra of all 3 as topping too)...I forgot all about the melted butter, but I didn't feel I was missing anything...wonderful flavor (subtlety sweet 'cause of the Splenda-which was a pleasant surprise)...made a large flatish loaf that I cut into dinner rolls-deliciously crusty tops and airy melt in mouth interiors...super good...served with a veggie borscht and fermented slaw/kraut and a TON left over (froze some)...{{and just had one w/ tea as a late nite snack - :) lol...couldn't resist ;) }} made for "I Recommend" and yes I do recommend these... planning to make again asap...:) YUMMY!!!num num num!!! -Thanks for the recipe share ~Nimz~!! :)

Easy to make. Turned out soft with a crispy crust (not like my usual bricks that can be used for door stops). Great recipe. Been growing the starter for over 2 years and finally decided to do something with it. It worked!

Delicious! The instructions were very easy to follow and I think this is the BEST sourdough bread I've made. I made this with PaulaG's Foolproof Sourdough Starter Foolproof Sourdough Starter. I substituted canola for sunflower oil and used real sugar instead of Splenda. Thanks ~Nimz~ you're awesome!

This bead is really good! This is my first straight sourdough bread I made. I took it to a family dinner tonight at my in-laws and everyone loved it. I put a pan of water underneath the loaves and the crust was crispy with a soft inside.

I made this last weekend and my husband loved it! He was so upset when it was gone that it looks like I'll be making another couple loaves this weekend! He made sandwiches out of this to take to work, and grilled cheese while home. It was very easy, especially since it uses my KitchenAid.

Very good bread Nimz. I had a VERY hard time with the sourdough starter...where to get it for instance lol. But, once I got that issue figured out I made delicious bread with a crunchy crust. Thank you!
